In the past 3 years, new computer-based language intervention models have been introduced into the communication sciences arena. The most prominent of these, the FastForWord® program (Scientific Learning Corporation, 1998), is an outgrowth of research that characterizes the relationship between language-learning impairment and temporal processing abilities. This article highlights the research history leading up to this innovation, describes the therapeutic protocol and client selection processes, discusses the pros and cons of clinical applications, and suggests future research directions relative to this new brand of language therapy.
