OAKLAND, Calif., Oct. 31, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A series of free online
seminars focused on the brain and learning are now available on iTunes, Yahoo,
and Google from Scientific Learning Corp. (OTCQB:SCIL), makers of the Fast
ForWord® and Reading Assistant™ family of products. Audio podcasts of the
one-hour webinars, which cover a range of topics from literacy and
neuroscience to autism support and interventions, can be accessed on-demand
anytime and anywhere. In addition, this November, Scientific Learning will air
two new live webinars highlighting ways to improve student learning at school
and at home.

Scientific Learning's next live webinar, titled "How a Low Performing School
Achieved Double-Digit Gains on the California Standards Tests (CSTs)," debuts
Nov. 5. In this session Charles Wilson, principal of Korematsu Discovery
Academy in East Oakland, Calif., will describe how the formerly low performing
school achieved Adequate Yearly Progress and exited Program Improvement
status. Wilson will discuss how the school's use of the Fast ForWord software
contributed to this dramatic improvement. In addition, Martha Burns, Ph.D., a
noted neuroscientist and practicing speech and language pathologist, will
share the science behind the Fast ForWord program and explain what makes it so
powerful as a reading intervention.

Dr. Burns will lead a new live webinar one week later on Nov. 12. Titled, "The
Science of Learning (for Parents)," the session will discuss how recent
research on the brain shows that developing the critical cognitive skills of
memory, attention, processing and sequencing can make a significant difference
for a child, resulting in improved reading and general academics. Joining Dr.
Burns will be a parent to discuss her child's progress and results with
BrainPro®, an innovative home learning software program.

The live webinars are free of charge but pre-registration is required. To
