Scientific Learning: Brain Training Product Review Survey

As part of our ongo­ing mar­ket research we’d like to ask past and cur­rent users of Sci­en­tif­ic Learn­ing prod­ucts to share their expe­ri­ence with us via this 3‑question anony­mous sur­vey.  Please take this sur­vey if you have used a Sci­en­tif­ic Learn­ing prod­uct your­self or have seen some­one else use it.

Take this 3‑question Survey

Please note that we do not endorse this prod­uct (or any oth­er) or any of the claims below. We inde­pen­dently track and ana­lyze emerg­ing brain/ cog­ni­tive sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy and inno­va­tion, and their real-world appli­ca­tions. This sur­vey helps us learn more about the latter.

Com­pany name: Sci­en­tif­ic Learning.

Com­pany descrip­tion (in their own words, in their own web­site): “After com­plet­ing the Sci­en­tif­ic Learn­ing fam­i­ly of prod­ucts, par­tic­i­pants can sig­nif­i­cant­ly improve their cog­ni­tive, lan­guage and lit­er­a­cy skills. Oth­er ben­e­fits include:  Aca­d­e­m­ic Achieve­ment — includ­ing sound­ing out new words and spelling as well as atten­tion span, writ­ing, and math;  Clear Eng­lish Lan­guage Com­mu­ni­ca­tion, includ­ing oral flu­en­cy,  pro­nun­ci­a­tion, vocab­u­lary, spon­tane­ity, and abil­i­ty to stay on top­ic;  Enhanced Read­ing Skills, includ­ing rec­ol­lec­tion of details and event sequence, abil­i­ty to under­stand com­plex sen­tences, and con­fi­dence when read­ing aloud;  Bet­ter Lis­ten­ing and Under­stand­ing, includ­ing response time to ques­tions, abil­i­ty to fol­low the flow of con­ver­sa­tion, and humor com­pre­hen­sion;  Stronger Mem­o­ry, includ­ing bet­ter reten­tion and recall of phone num­bers, event sequences, and details; Improved Self-esteem, includ­ing par­tic­i­pa­tion in class­room and group activ­i­ties as well as enthu­si­asm about school.”

Main prod­uct name/s:  Fast For­ward, Read­ing Assis­tant — for school age.

Prod­uct descrip­tion (in their own words, in their own web­site): “The Fast For­Word pro­gram is a learn­ing accel­er­a­tion pro­gram based on over 30 years of neu­ro­science research, designed for edu­ca­tion insti­tu­tions, Eng­lish lan­guage learn­ing cen­ters, and clin­i­cal spe­cial­ists worldwide.

The Fast For­Word pro­gram devel­ops the cog­ni­tive skills that enhance learn­ing.  The strength­en­ing of these skills results in a wide range of improved crit­i­cal lan­guage and read­ing skills such as phono­log­i­cal aware­ness, phone­mic aware­ness, flu­en­cy, vocab­u­lary, com­pre­hen­sion, decod­ing, work­ing mem­o­ry, syn­tax, gram­mar, and oth­er skills nec­es­sary to learn how to read or to become a bet­ter reader.

For your Eng­lish Lan­guage learn­ers, the Fast For­Word pro­gram builds a strong cog­ni­tive aca­d­e­m­ic lan­guage foun­da­tion.  Learn­ers expe­ri­ence rapid improve­ments in Eng­lish lan­guage and lit­er­a­cy skills, includ­ing the essen­tial skill of read­ing for meaning.

Par­tic­i­pants work on the Fast For­Word pro­gram 3 — 5 days a week for approx­i­mate­ly 8 – 12 weeks. In stud­ies, stu­dents have expe­ri­enced gains in read­ing skills aver­ag­ing 1 – 2 years.

Just as a body runs bet­ter and quick­er when fit, brains learn bet­ter after con­sis­tent use with the Fast For­Word exer­cis­es. The key is pro­cess­ing effi­cien­cy, and stu­dents around the globe, regard­less of native lan­guage, are using the Fast For­Word pro­gram to devel­op the cog­ni­tive skills that enhance learn­ing, lead­ing to aca­d­e­m­ic success.”
