EVIDENCE-BASED INTERVENTION FOR CHILDREN WITH AUTISTIC SPECTRUM DISORDERS

 Scientific Parenting for a SMARTER Brain Seminar

Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) need to develop skills in their sensory system (sight, touch, taste and hearing).  They particularly require more support with their auditory (hearing) sensory skills. Children with autism often have difficulty perceiving the differences in sounds (an auditory processing disorder), and this is a core component of their attention, memory and language difficulties.

Fast ForWord®, a revolutionary personalized online cognitive training programme developed by neuroscientists from Scientific Learning (USA) can be an integral part of intervention and development for children with ASD, as they develop the auditory processing skills that are key to overcoming their language difficulties. This programme can improve their verbal and non-verbal communication, social interaction and creative play.

Children with autism find the Fast ForWord® programmes very engaging because of the visual appeal of the exercises and frequently repeated tasks. Parents and carers often report evident gains for their children after having used Fast ForWord.

The Fast ForWord® Advantage:

1) Based on 30 years of neuroscience research in universities including Harvard, Stanford and MIT.

2) Approved and funded by the Australian government as an early intervention programme for children with ASD.

3) Reviewed by Dr Norman Doidge, psychiatrist and author, in his New-York Times best-seller “The Brain that Changes Itself”.

4) More than 1000students in Singapore have benefitted from the programme.
