Autism Treatment

Targets Processing Delays at Core of the Autism Diagnosis

The one thing almost all children diagnosed on the autism spectrum have in common is a delay in processing skills.  Our neuroscience-based software is an adaptive autism treatment that interacts with these processing delays and tiny step by tiny step improves processing speed and efficiency for all ages.

Gemm Learning provides this software at home with the constant remote oversight of caring professionals.

We almost always make a difference, sometimes profound.  This is because the software captures every decision a student makes while working in the program and adjusts the learning path accordingly.  This creates an individualized learning experience for each student, at his or her own level and pace, that stimulates new neural pathways, new brain function.

Our software treatment helps autistic children with:

  • Language
  • Social interaction
  • Reading
  • Attention

Now Available At Home
Our online autism treatment allows parents to act as coaches for their autistic children at home, with remote professional oversight to make sure your child is on track. We monitor your child daily, call regularly and report weekly.  If there is a difficulty, we run online virtual sessions to get your child’s routine back on track.

Individualized Programs
Every child is different. The software will adapt and create an individualized path through the program, at your child’s pace. In addition, we select exercises and regimens that set your child up to succeed.

The Science

The strategies and thinking around treating autism have been changed dramatically by this discovery by Fast ForWord founder, Dr. Michael Merzenich:

Autistic children make the same errors in language and reading as higher functioning children, they just make more of them.

This is an important new way to think about autism treatment.  If a program like Fast ForWord can help struggling readers, then it should also be able to help autistic children?

Intensity To Rewire Thinking and Learning
The key to Fast ForWord is its ability to interact with the user with precision, responding to correct answers with tiny increments in speed and complexity, pulling the student up to ever higher levels of capability.  This intensity, where every click counts, goes beyond what is possible in one-on-one teaching.
How the autism software works

Efficacy of Our Program

brain based autism treatmentBehaviors and learning difficulties related to autism vary widely. And therefore program outcomes and definitions of success vary widely. That being said, the anecdotal success of Fast ForWord for autistic children has created real interest in our program. We have had some wonderful feedback from our families.
Testimonials from our parents

While autism is a challenging diagnosis, the adaptive nature of Fast ForWord — its ability to exercise at the margin of cognitive function — is creating a powerful new potential intervention for this population.
