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.
The Impact of Reading Achievement
Too many students lack proficient reading skills, leading to struggles with learning, confidence, and behavior. Our Fast ForWord Literacy intensively targets underlying cognitive and language skills and permanently builds student learning capacity, resulting in lasting reading gains, social-emotional growth, and improved graduation rates. .
