Fast ForWord Reading Level 2 software consolidates early childhood reading skills, with a focus on applying phonics and decoding strategies, improving word recognition, and understanding the rules for reading comprehension.

To accelerate reading progress, Fast ForWord Reading Level 2 exercises critical brain processing efficiency in four key areas:

  • Builds memory by having students hold an incomplete sentence in working memory while recalling vocabulary, grammar, and punctuation rules from long-term memory.
  • Improves attention by sustaining interest across multiple passage segments and questions.
  • Develops processing by coordinating the auditory and visual processing of two perceptual streams, speech and written text.
  • Develops sequencing by using word order and grammar to identify subtle difference in meaning among phrases, sentences and passages.

Fast ForWord Reading Level 2 software works by increasing processing efficiency and building critical reading skills so districts get the most from their existing instructional approach.

Four key components of our technology-based reading intervention work together to create the dramatic changes in brain function required to achieve universal literacy:

  • Frequency and Intensity—Neuroscience research demonstrates that completing a set of learning tasks in a frequent, intense timeframe accelerates learning
  • Adaptivity—The brain fitness exercises adapt with each key stroke to individual skill levels and responses, keeping students continuously challenged but not frustrated
  • Simultaneous Development—The brain fitness exercises develop major cognitive and reading skills simultaneously to produce lasting improvements in learning
  • Timely Motivation—Tiered rewards are designed to maximize motivation from start to finish.

Students can double their expected reading gains using one of our prescribed protocols:

  • Three days per week for 30 or 50 minutes.
  • Five days per week for 30, 40, 50, or 90 minutes.

Easy-to-Use Reports and Indicators

MySciLEARN™ reports for Fast ForWord enable educators to monitor student performance at the individual, classroom/group, school, and district level.

Educators get clear, daily, action-oriented information showing student progress over time in reading and cognitive skills areas, as well as gains reports that correlate to nationally recognized normed assessments. It’s one of the reasons why our learning acceleration programs have been so successful in helping schools and districts meet state and federal mandates.

What is Fast ForWord Reading Level 2 software?

Fast ForWord Reading Level 2 software is a reading intervention solution that increases processing efficiency and builds critical reading skills so districts get the most from their existing instructional approach.

Who should use Fast ForWord Reading Level 2 software?

Fast ForWord Reading Level 2 software is for K-12 education institutions and clinical specialists worldwide whose students are reading below grade level.

What are the Fast ForWord Reading Level 2 exercises like?

  • Bear Bags More Lunch: Builds skills in phonemic awareness, phonics and decoding of one and two syllable words.
  • Ant Antics: Develops critical reading and sentence comprehension by asking students to match pictures to their descriptive titles.
  • Leaping Lizards: Improves sentence comprehension while building vocabulary, punctuation and capitalization skills as well as word morphology, prefixes and suffixes.

 

What kind of results can students achieve with Fast ForWord software?

Learners can realize achievement gains of 1-2 years in as little as 8-12 weeks and maintain an accelerated rate of learning even after the programs end. Longitudinal research shows that the increase in the rate of learning is permanent over time, closing the achievement gap.

In addition, students often exhibit enhanced self-confidence, better communication, greater interest in learning, and improved mental agility and alertness, after working on Fast ForWord products.

How do I know Fast ForWord Reading Level 2 software is working?

Scientific Learning Progress Tracker, an accountability tool, provides real-time monitoring of individual and group performance on the Fast ForWord exercises.

Teachers can receive automatic emailed reports with specific recommendations for instructional intervention. Administrator reports provide disaggregated data for groups of students, making it easy to monitor progress toward AYP goals.

Why does Fast ForWord Reading Level 2 software work?

Just as physical exercise increases muscle strength and efficiency, Fast ForWord Reading Level 2 software exercises the brain, increasing its ability to learn better and faster. Each brain fitness exercise targets and develops the processing efficiency needed for successful reading and learning.

How does Fast ForWord Reading Level 2 software work?

Fast ForWord Reading Level 2 software uses proven brain science principles to develop essential learning skills in the four key areas of memory, attention, processing rate, and sequencing. These are the underlying skills required for reading and learning.

The learning principles behind the brain fitness exercises—frequency and intensity, adaptivity, simultaneous development, and timely motivation—are maximized by state of the art technology that is based on more than 30 years of research on how the brain learns.

  • Frequency and Intensity—Research demonstrates that completing a set of learning tasks in a frequent, intensive timeframe accelerates learning.
  • Adaptivity—The brain fitness exercises adapt with each key stroke to individual skill levels and responses, keeping students continuously challenged but not frustrated.
  • Simultaneous Development—The brain fitness exercises develop major cognitive and reading skills simultaneously to produce lasting improvements in learning.
  • Timely Motivation—Tiered rewards are designed to maximize motivation from start to finish.
