Fast ForWord: About

 

 

What is Fast Forword?

Fast ForWord is an evidence-based, adaptive reading and language program that delivers 1-2 years gain in 40-60 hours of use for any struggling learner. Schools choose Fast ForWord because our unique brain-based approach targets the root causes of reading difficulty to deliver lasting results that make better readers and lifelong learners. 

Fast ForWord has 2 tracks for learning:

2.  Reading Assistant Plus

Reading Assistant Plus™️ is an innovative online guided reading tool and component of the Fast ForWord program that provides intensive reading practice. Learners use the tool to read developmentally appropriate texts both silently and aloud. What makes Reading Assistant Plus such an innovative reading practice tool is its use of patented technology that listens as each word is read aloud and delivers immediate support whenever a learner struggles with or mispronounces a word — reinforcing newly learned reading skills, vocabulary, and fluency.

People with the following conditions can benefit from the Reading Assistant Plus program:

  • English Language Learners
  • Struggling Readers
  • Dyslexia
  • Gifted Students
  • Attention/Focus
  • Confidence Boost

 


What are the benefits of both programs?

Improved Reading and Language Skills
Fast ForWord targets the reading skills of phonemic awareness, phonics, the alphabet, vocabulary, grammar, fluency, and comprehension.
 
Improved Cognitive Skills and Executive Function
Our brain-based approach results in strong cognitive skills that are core to reading and language, like memory, attention, processing, and sequencing.


How it works
 
1. Prepare
The Fast ForWord product prepares the brain for reading by improving the language and cognitive skills that are weak in struggling students (MAPS: memory, attention, processing speed, and sequencing).
 
2. Practice
With the Fast ForWord product, your child will receive personalized, intensive practice on a wide variety of language and reading skills—more than any other approach or intervention. Intensity is the key to getting far better results, fast.
 
3. Reinforce
Using speech verification technology, our product listens to students as they read aloud and provides corrective guided reading feedback to help reinforce new language and reading skills and rapidly build fluency and comprehension.
