Fast ForWord

Fast ForWord helps children, from age 5 through 18, who struggle with reading difficulties, auditory processing disorder, speech or language impairment, autism, ADD/ADHD, a learning disability, or who are at risk for falling behind.
Fast ForWord is an intervention designed to address the  root cause of learning difficulties by training the brain to  more effectively process auditory information.  The  program focuses on improving attention, memory, and  processing speed while building foundational reading and  language skills.  

Fast ForWord helps students with...

  • Reading difficulties and dyslexia
  • Auditory processing disorder
  • Speech or language impairment
  • Autism
  • Learning disabilities


Interactive metronome

Interactive Metronome® (IM) is an evidence-based assessment and training tool that helps strengthen the brain’s ability to synchronize thought and movement to a steady metronome beat. The overall goal of IM training is to improve timing in the brain, or Neuro-timing, through rhythm and repetition.  When Neuro-timing improves, gains are seen in:

  • Attention & Executive Functioning
  • Motor Coordination & Balance
  • Language Processing
  • Reading & Math Fluency
  • Control of Impulsivity & Aggression


Neurofeedback is a technique in which we train the brain to help improve its ability to regulate all bodily functions and to take care of itself (self-regulation).

When the brain is not functioning well, evidence of this often shows up in the EEG (Electroencephalogram). By challenging the brain, much as you challenge your body in physical exercise, we can help your brain learn to function better.
