Fast ForWord® is a computer-based language and reading intervention. It uses the principles of neuroplasticity – the ability of the brain to rewire and change itself – to treat the underlying causes of reading and language difficulties. By addressing the root causes of the difficulty, new neuron connections are made, relevant areas of the brain are strengthened and the student is able to learn better and faster.
In addition to developing the underlying processing skills, Fast ForWord® also strengthens core cognitive skills necessary for learning, such as memory, attention, processing rate and sequencing.
Participants in the program achieve reading and language gains of 1- 2 years in just 3 months and demonstrate improvement in:
- Phonological Awareness
- Phonemic Awareness
- Grammar and Syntax
Fast ForWord® can be done in-office; at home under the supervision of a Fast ForWord ® provider; or in combination – based on the student’s needs.
