This study from Northwestern University (IL) assessed the impact of auditory training on auditory function in children with ASD. While the study was small it showed improved auditory processing after the use of FFW.  The study was done outside of Scientific Learning.   Biological changes in auditory function following training in children with autism spectrum disorders by Russo, N, Hornickel, J, et. al. in Behaviour and Brain Functions, 2010.

Rapid auditory processing important in reading development:  (2007) Students with developmental dyslexia showed disruption in the neural response to rapid stimuli were significantly improved in reading and showed increased brain activation after intervention.
