Did you know that struggling readers need 10x-30x more practice to catch up to grade-level peers? Unlike other approaches, Fast ForWord is a reading intervention program that is uniquely designed to help pre-readers and struggling readers by directly and intensively targeting the areas that need to be improved. The program begins by improving the underlying cognitive skills associated with reading struggle and then delivers personalized, intensive practice across a wide range of language and reading tasks to help students make rapid improvement that continues long after they are finished with the program.
