Reading Fluency Program


Reading Assistant Guided Reading Tool for Your Students

An Online Guided Reading Tool for Improving Vocabulary, Fluency, Comprehension, and Prosody

Oral reading is critical in improving reading fluency, comprehension, and prosody. Reading Assistant is an innovative guided reading tool that provides intensive reading practice. Learners use the tool to read developmentally appropriate texts both silently and aloud. What makes Reading Assistant such an innovative reading practice tool is its use of patented technology that listens as each word is read aloud and delivers immediate support whenever a learner struggles with or mispronounces a word — reinforcing newly learned reading skills, vocabulary, and fluency.

What it Does

Provides Guided Reading Support to More Students

Reading Assistant uses patented speech recognition technology to deliver real-time corrective guided reading feedback, enabling learners to self-correct as they are reading aloud.

Improves Both Silent Reading and Oral Reading Skills

Unlike other digital reading practice resources that only allow learners to record themselves reading aloud, Reading Assistant actually listens and helps learners whenever they struggle or mispronounce a word — it’s like having a personal guided reading tutor available 24/7!

Saves Teachers Time in Preparing Reports

Automatic calculation of words correct per minute (WCPM), and actionable comprehension and vocabulary reports make it easy to track learners’ reading levels, and specific areas of strength and weakness.

Fast ForWord is an evidence-based language and reading intervention program that uses a unique 3-step approach to deliver fast learning gains. The program was developed by world-renowned neuroscientists to target the root causes of language and reading difficulty directly. No other intervention does this. Once these underlying areas are addressed, learners’ reading and language skills improve quickly, and continue to improve even after they have completed using Fast ForWord.

Key Features

Dozens of online and mobile skill-building exercises for elementary and secondary school age learners

Adaptive technology that adjusts delivery to meet the needs of each learner

A digital guided reading tool that provides real-time corrective feedback as students read texts aloud

Automated assessments to ensure continued learning growth

Digital reporting to track reading and language skill development

How it Works: 3 Steps to Transformative Reading and Language Growth

Step 1: Prepare

Fast ForWord prepares the brain for reading and learning by improving the cognitive skills that are weak in struggling learners (memory, attention, and processing speed).

Step 2: Practice

Fast ForWord ensures every learner receives personalized, intensive practice on a wide variety of reading and language skills — more than any other approach or intervention.

Step 3: Reinforce

Using speech verification technology, our program listens to students as they read aloud, like a guided reading coach! Learners reinforce their new reading and language skills and rapidly build fluency and comprehension.

What Results Can You Expect?

 

√   Improved thinking and learning skills that result in more confident, engaged learners

√   Better reading skills and summative testing performance

√   Continued learning growth even after learners have completed the program

Our programs builds attention and memory skills so  students are better able to process the sounds of English and then organize those sounds within words and words within sentences.

Fast ForWord provides intense practice. The program provides over 25,000 trials in academic language exercises, whereas other reading interventions provide just over 5,000. With 5 times the amount of trials, the progress comes fast.

This is a real fMRI data from a study conducted at Harvard and Stanford universities. Let’s look at the brain of a proficient reader and then a struggling reader. See the difference? After just 8 weeks, Fast ForWord helped weak readers develop the brain activity patterns that resemble those of strong readers.

With 55 patents in neuroscience and education and 300+ research studies, no other reading intervention program has been as thoroughly researched and reviewed as Fast ForWord.

You can depend on the quality, innovation and results that has made us the # 1 English language development software on the US government’s What Works Clearinghouse

The  programs builds language and reading systematically – from younger to older students, at high interest and  low ability all the way to International Baccalaureate level…

Proficient language and reading requires strong cognitive skills. This is why other English programs frequently don’t help struggling students. Each of the intervention exercises in our program cross-trains core language skills with equally important cognitive skills.

Give your students the best opportunity to accelerate their English skills and become better learners
