"When my son began Fast ForWord®, he was in first grade reading a little below first grade level. Now, at the end of second grade, he is reading between 4th and 5th grade level. The support I received with the program was excellent, and now he loves to read, and is one of the top readers in his class!!!"

What is the Fast ForWord® Series?

Scientific studies prove that we can improve brain fitness by exercising our brain through activities that improve learning and reading.

The Fast ForWord® program builds brain fitness through a series of frequent, adaptive computer exercises that simultaneously develop the key cognitive skills with timely motivation. It increases the ability to process information quickly and accurately, pay attention despite distractions, recall information that has been learned, and retain knowledge.

The software exercises are fun, but also rewarding, with built-in positive reinforcements. The exercises are customized to each student, adapting to the level of the student’s abilities and providing a challenging experience without frustration.

The Fast ForWord® LANGUAGE series for elementary students and the Fast ForWord® LITERACY series for adolescent students build foundational reading and language skills while improving memory, attention and processing Special Education and English Language Learners to successful learners in the general classroom.

The Fast ForWord® READING series – a reading intervention solution – increases processing efficiency and builds critical reading skills from their existing instructional approach.

Scientific Learning Corporation’s research shows that in using Fast ForWord® software, learners from pre-K to post-secondary levels have realized achievement gains of one to two years in as little as eight to twelve (8-12) weeks and have maintained an accelerated rate of learning even after the program ended.

Processing Rate refers to both the speed and accuracy with which the brain processes information. This is important because all literacy development – from learning to talk to learning to read to writing proficiently – is dependent on your child’s ability to process sounds and words quickly.

Attention is the ability to focus and pay careful attention to details. Teachers may use the term “poor listening skills” if your child is having trouble attending and following directions.

Recall and Memory is the ability to retrieve information from long term memory. “Working memory” is holding information in the short term, which is necessary for your child to complete tasks such as learning, reasoning, and comprehending.

Sequencing is the ability to place information in the correct order, such as days of the week. This is important for your child to process and comprehend information.

Reading and Literacy Skills such as phonemic awareness, phonics, and auditory discrimination of sounds and sound sequencing are important foundational skills your child needs to successfully read – which is the basis of all academic learning.

Vocabulary and Grammar refer to understanding the meaning of words and the rules for written and oral language. This is important for your child since it’s much easier to read fluently when they understand the words and structure.

"My son's experience with Fast ForWord® has changed his life. He can now read at grade level and feel confident answering questions in class. I would recommend this program for any child who is struggling with reading. It is simply amazing!"
