Fast ForWord – Fit Brains Learn Better
Now you can use neuroscience based English teaching programs in Your classroom
Blended learning program for Your studentsWith Fast ForWord you can do what you cannot do with any other intervention: You start with cognitive skills like memory, attention and processing speed and systematically develop reading, language and comprehension skills, using the principles of neuroplasticity.
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.”
Michael Daly, Kinnity School.
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” -”
Donald W. Aguillard, Ph.D, St. Mary Parish Public Schools.
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.”
Sr. Anne Keating, Scoil Bhride Naofa, Kildare.
Sustained Attention “My daughter has been doing the FastForword program for less than three months. She is in second year and was finding it hard to study and concentrate….. Well, after this short time, her marks have really soared! She got 98% in her last 3 tests. She seems to be able to focus more when she does study – and she is now finishing her tests in time, whereas before she’d not be able to complete them in the allotted time.”

Symptoms Improvement “One, a language study, showed that Fast ForWord quickly moved autistic children from severe language impairment to the normal range. But another pilot study of one hundred autistic children showed that Fast ForWord had a significant impact on their autistic symptoms as well.”
“The Brain That Changes Itself” Norman Doidge.
Receptive Language Gains “Studies indicate that students trained with Fast ForWord® make, an average, one to two years gains after four to eight weeks of training.”
Education Commission of the States.
Listening and Intonation “These results provide an objective indication of the benefit of training on auditory function for some children with Autism Spectrum Disorder… changes identified in the current study were accompanied by consistent and successful progression through Fast ForWord training.”
Russo, Kraus et al, NorthWestern University, USA, 2010
Auditory Discrimination Following Fast ForWord participation, students with ASD reached the average range in auditory discrimination skills and their overall language ability improved by approximately one year.
