Scientific Learning (OTCMKTS:SCIL) Announces the Fast ForWordProgram has been Selected for Dyslexia Testing and Intervention Grant

Scientific Learning (OTCMKTS:SCIL) delivers online learning acceleration programs that enable students to make dramatic, enduring gains in academic performance.  The Donegan Burns Foundation, an organization that helps schools, afterschool programs and children’s organizations provide appropriate instruction to prevent and close these gaps, has selected the Fast ForWordprogram from Scientific Learning Corp. as the intervention for its Dyslexia Testing and Intervention (DTI) Grant on Friday, August 16th 2013.

The DTI Grant will prove for dyslexia testing and intervention for children in school.  Through the grant, children participate in Fast ForWord online reading intervention for 30 to 50 minutes a day; each student will advance at his or her own pace.

“In our current education system, children at risk for dyslexia often fall two or three years behind before receiving help. These children may suffer bullying, lose confidence and self-esteem, and ultimately drop out of school,” said Bettye Geurin-Burns, president of the Donegan Burns Foundation. “We researched many different programs for children with reading difficulties and found that the Fast ForWord program best met our needs. With Fast ForWord, we’ve seen children advance one or more grade levels in three to nine months of reading intervention.”
