Fast ForWord

The program is a learning acceleration software based on over 30 years of neuroscience research, designed for education institutions, English language learning centers, and clinical specialists worldwide.

The Fast ForWord program develops the cognitive skills that enhance learning.  The strengthening of these skills results in a wide range of improved critical language and reading skills such as phonological awareness, phonemic awareness, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, decoding, working memory, syntax, grammar, and other skills necessary to learn how to read or to become a better reader.

For your English Language learners, the Fast ForWord program builds a strong cognitive academic language foundation.  Learners experience rapid improvements in English language and literacy skills, including the essential skill of reading for meaning.

Participants work on the Fast ForWord program 3 – 5 days a week for approximately 8 – 12 weeks. In studies, students have experienced gains in reading skills averaging 1 – 2 years.

Just as a body runs better and quicker when fit, brains learn better after consistent use with the Fast ForWord exercises. The key is processing efficiency, and students around the globe, regardless of native language, are using the Fast ForWord program to develop the cognitive skills that enhance learning, leading to academic success.

Improved Attendance

“Achieving goals and seeing progress gives these pupils greater confidence and enhances general self-esteem.  As the pupils enjoy this programme and achieve success, this has led to improved attendance and greater participation across all curricular areas.”

Strengthen Cognitive Skills

“One of the things I was excited about was that the Fast ForWord program is based on the science of how the brain learns and retains information…We realized that to make the most of our programs, we needed to develop and strengthen the cognitive skills essential for learning and reading success” -”

Improves Memory

“The Fast ForWord programme helps improve short and long term memory, which is essential for word recognition. It improves pupil’s concentration and attention, allowing them to focus on the task. It also strengthens processing skills and improves sequencing. Lessons are presented as fun games and as pupil’s skills get stronger, the exercises get more complicated.”

Sustained Attention

“One of the most apparent benefits of the Fast ForWord program is the sustained attention of the children in their everyday class work.  By the end of the program last year all children participating had improved their ability to remain focused and complete their tasks in class.  I feel this transferred from the Fast ForWord program.”
