Hi, Cath!

I don't have direct experience with Fast ForWord, but I have one
client -- a 5th grader with athetoid CP -- who use it. His mother
reports that he enjoys working with it, and that it especially helps
him to pay attention to the sounds and sound differentiation of
letters in words.

Another client of mine who had a stroke (at a young age) uses Posit
Science's Brain Fitness Program to assist with her auditory
processing rehabilitation. I can't tell you too much about the
program itself, but the company's customer service was very
responsive in helping us swap a Windows version for their
just-released Mac version last summer (even overnighted the package).

Probably not the nature of input you're looking for, but at least
it's all positive. :-)
