Neuron Learning Programs address the cognitive challenges routinely faced by students to process English language information as quickly as it is presented. Fast ForWord exercises the parts of the brain that contribute to memory, attention, processing speed and sequencing. Students think faster, remember more and stay on task more easily after completing the programs. The software helps ensure fluency by systematically developing the critical skills of listening accuracy, phonemic awareness, phonics, decoding, vocabulary, spelling, grammar and comprehension.   Transcription: Today’s classroom is more academically diverse than ever and even though schools offer a variety of programs and resources, some learners continue to perform below grade level. So how can teachers accelerate learning for every student? It all starts with the brain; with help students can strengthen foundation learning pathways in the brain dramatically increasing their capacity to learn. That’s exactly what Fast ForWord does, quickly transforming students into better learners across all areas of study. Learners who can absorb information faster pay closer attention and remember more of what they are taught. That’s because Fast ForWord develops not only reading and language skills, but also the cognitive skills of memory, attention, processing & sequencing that are key to learning. No other program for K12 learners develops all this skills at the same time. It’s a targeted workout for the brain. Fast ForWord sets each student on a differentiated learning path based on age and assessment results then it keeps on adapting to the learner with every click of the mouse. Graphical reports let teachers’ see how their students are progressing and quickly pinpoints those who need extra help. At the same time district administrators can easily see student gains at each school and district wide. Does Fast ForWord really work? An independent study commissioned by the Nevada department of education evaluated 24 widely used educational programs and rated Fast ForWord as having the highest impact of all.
