“In many cases,
AIT should be the first
therapy approach used. AIT
appears to “set the stage” for so much of the progress which can
be made. Following
AIT, teachers and speech-language pathologist may see greater
progress in all areas than would have been possible without AIT.”

hysterical outbursts, no headbanging. At home he listens better,
complies more readily, falls asleep faster and stays asleep longer. He copes better with uncomfortable situations, converses about
a subject, staying on the subject rather than following flights
of fancy. He writes
words as he hears them rather than me dictate them.
He says I love... more, before he said I hate... a lot.
The word ‘boring’ does not come up as often.”

have a client who has been working with our state Dyslexic Assoc.for
two years trying to teach him to recognize the letters in his
name. Nothing has seemed to work. The child's self-esteem
was rock bottom. We started Fast ForWord in his home and
within 4 weeks he was writing his name and now (at completion
at 7 weeks) he has just finished reading his fifth book.
His favorite author is Dr. Seuss because he "loves the way
the books play with rhyme". Fast ForWord has worked
for this child and his two older sisters and one brother will
begin Fast ForWord soon. I believe most dyslexic individuals
have severe auditory processing disorders which Fast ForWord corrects.
