Oakland, Calif. — Aug. 1, 2014 — The Fast ForWord® online reading intervention from Scientific Learning Corp. (OTCQB:SCIL) has been selected as a winner of the eSchool News Readers’ Choice Awards. The Readers’ Choice Awards recognize the educational technology products and services that have had the greatest impact in readers’ schools.

The Fast ForWord program was nominated by K-12 educators and administrators, and chosen as one of 50 winners from more than 1,300 nominations. The eSchool News Readers’ Choice Awards ask readers to provide their top picks for hardware, software or online services in any area of educational technology, and to explain how they are using these products to improve teaching, learning or school administration — and to what effect.

“Being recognized by K-12 educators and administrators for this award is a real honor, and we are grateful to our customers who nominated the Fast ForWord program based on their success in their schools,” said Robert C. Bowen, CEO of Scientific Learning. “We’re excited to continue our efforts to bring the Fast ForWord program to more students than ever before — particularly to struggling readers, special education students, and English language learners, who see tremendous results with this program. With our new, shorter three-day protocol and the availability of Fast ForWord on the iPad®, schools now have more options and more opportunities to treat the underlying cause of language and reading difficulties, once and for all.”
