Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of teletherapy?
The biggest benefit to teletherapy is that you never have to leave your house. But you can also be involved in your child’s remediation plan. No more sitting in the waiting room and getting a 2-minute summary about the session and how to implement it at home.
Does virtual therapy really work?
Research shows that attending speech/language therapy virtually is as effective as attending in person.
Why Fast ForWord?
Why does my child need to see you at least 2x/week?
How are you different from what the school does for my child?
How long will my child need to see you?
I know my child is smart, why can’t my s/he learn like other children?
Children with LLD (Language Learning Disabilities) do not process information like other children. They may frequently mishear things and therefore mispronounce words. You may have a child who has a very large and advanced vocabulary, but when they go to use that vocabulary, they botch the word. The longer the word, the harder it is to pronounce for them.
What is CAPD?
CAPD is also called Central Auditory Processing Disorder or Auditory Processing Disorder. A person with this disorder may have difficulty “keeping up”. They may seem easily distracted and off track. They may miss all or part of a sentence or story. They may mispronounce words because they did not hear them correctly when they learned them. They may mumble because when they were learning language it heard it that way. All these things will affect their ability to learn and to turn auditory language into written language.
