What is Fast ForWord?
Fast ForWord is an evidence-based, adaptive reading and language program that delivers 1-2 years gains in 40-60 hours of use. The programs cross-train language, reading and cognitive skills for long-lasting benefits.
Schools choose Fast ForWord because our unique brain-based approach targets the root causes of reading difficulty to deliver immediate and lasting results that make better readers and lifelong learners.
