What is Fast ForWord?

Fast ForWord is a series of computer-delivered, brain-fitness exercises designed to produce dramatic language and reading improvements by improving memory, attention and processing skills.

The Fast ForWord learning supports your child’s existing curriculum—it doesn’t replace it.  When students process more efficiently, every other instructional strategy works better. The results in schools throughout the country are dramatic; students can achieve a one- to two-year gain in reading skills in 8-12 weeks.
