Auditory Processing Disorder Treatment
Targets the processing deficits, not the symptoms
Your auditory processing disorder treatment choices are to manage the symptoms with speech therapy, tutoring, etc., or to go after the underlying impediment with an intervention like Gemm Learning -- home-based software, with trusted professional oversight.
Just as a muscle responds to exercise, our Fast ForWord software builds processing and related cognitive skills, step by step. Most students see significant gains in listening, language and reading skills in 4-6 months.
How Fast ForWord Treats APD
Fast ForWord is the most recommended auditory processing disorder treatment in North America, now provided to families at home by Gemm Learning -- online, with trusted professional oversight. Neuroscience-based, the program creates new neural pathways, profound changes in brain function that are measurable on fMRIs.
The programs starts out by exercising auditory processing difficulties and cognitive skills -- working memory, attention, processing and sequencing -- before moving to reading fluency and comprehension.

Goals of our APD Treatment
Boost Ability to Follow Directions
Children with auditory processing difficulties struggle with listening because they do not process fast enough to make sense of the words and to retain them. Background noise can also be troublesome. Our auditory processing disorder treatment builds the processing efficiency and working memory required to listen comfortably at natural language speed.
Build Reading Efficiency & Confidence
Central auditory processing disorder impacts phonological awareness, a crucial reading skill. Our reading programs improve phonological awareness and reading fluency in younger readers, and decoding efficiency and reading comprehension in older children.
Lack of Focus
Auditory processing difficulties make listening and reading exhausting, often leading to a lack of focus and an ADD diagnosis. Instead of ADD meds though, an auditory processing disorder treatment that treats the sources of difficulty here, the APD, may be a better choice.
How our program helps ADD
Build Language Skills
Many children with auditory processing disorder have limited vocabulary, articulation and/or conversational skills. Inefficient listening impedes absorbing the finer points of language naturally. This impacts spoken language, reading and writing later on. Most students experience significant gains in language dexterity from our treatment in 1-2 months.
