Adaptive Elementary Reading and Language Intervention Exercises
We believe that one struggling reader is one too many. Despite countless educational initiatives and programs, students continue to fall - and stay - behind. A different approach to intervention is needed for our most vulnerable learners to help them catch up, once and for all. Fast ForWord provides effective language and reading intervention for elementary age learners in grades K-5.
What It Does
Targets the Root Causes of Reading and Learning Struggle
Many learners’ struggle to read because their brains do not process the phonemes of English as efficiently as their peers. Fast ForWord was designed by neuroscientists to target the underlying causes of reading and learning struggle directly. Once the processing weaknesses are addressed, learners are able to develop reading and learning skills far more quickly.
Provides the Intensive Practice Struggling Readers Need
To catch up to their peers, struggling readers need 10-30 times the amount of reading practice. Fast ForWord delivers more practice opportunities than any other intervention program. Exercises are designed to adapt delivery to each learner, ensuring that each learner develops the critical cognitive skills and reading skills they need to become proficient readers.
Produces Fast, Lifelong Learning Gains
Fast ForWord produces fast, enduring learning gains because it addresses the root causes of reading struggle, provides the necessary reading practice, and reinforces newly learned skills with its digital guided reading tool. And best of all, learners that use Fast ForWord continue to make significant learning progress even after they complete the program.
