Language-Based Learning Disabilities in Children

Humans have an innate capacity to learn language, and whatever is spoken to them during the first few years of life is picked up naturally. The ability to tease out the sounds within words, or “parsing”, is what helps kids who are first learning their native language to figure out all the sounds in a word, the sequence of those sounds, and grammatical forms such as plural or verb tenses.

For children with language-learning disabilities, parsing words into sounds is particularly challenging, and it affects not only language learning but also reading and other school skills.

Scientists and researchers have shed some light on why some children struggle so much with language (but not with other learning, such as visual processing or musical education), postulating that the root of this issue lies with the brain. Specifically, differing brain wave bands appear to be a major mechanism coordinating billions of nerves across different brain regions to perform cognitive tasks. These bands are grouped by their frequency; so-called alpha bands, beta bands, gamma bands and theta bands all refer to brain oscillations of different frequencies.

Brain scientists have discovered that gamma bands are especially important for parsing words into sounds. Significantly, children with language-based learning disabilities (including dyslexia) appear to have differing brain oscillation patterns in the areas important for learning language.

What might cause differences in brain oscillation patterns is largely unknown and open to speculation, but it is possible for parents and teachers to improve the gamma band efficiency of struggling learners. Fast ForWord Language audio-visual training is one such program, offered in Bangkok by BrainFit Studio.

Fast ForWord specifically addresses the problem of parsing words into sounds by improving the accuracy of Rapid Auditory Processing (RAP), which is the ability to efficiently perceive and sequence two non-speech sounds as quickly as speech sounds in words. In a majority of cases, children who used Fast ForWord Language showed improvements in core language skills, expressive language skills, and receptive language skills.
