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.”
