I want to share a very important study for families with children with Dyslexia here in Hawaii.
This study was conducted by Nadine Gaab and her colleagues and was published in Restorative Neurology and Neuroscience. Studies have shown that in adults with developmental dyslexia, there is a disruption of the left prefrontal cortex’s response to short sounds. This is important since speech is made up of numerous short sounds and a person’s mastery of the subtle sounds of spoken language are related to reading ability.
Our experience with Dyslexic learners in Hawaii has shown that learners using the Fast ForWord program made truly amazing progress through the systematic application of brain training.
