    What is Fast ForWord?


    The Fast ForWord products provide intensive, computer-based training for the language, thinking, and reading skills that students need to get the most out of your teaching and your curriculum. Resulting from over 25 years of research on how the brain learns, Fast ForWord provides students with gains of 1 to 2 years or more in the critical learning skills that they need to be ready for classroom instruction. After just 20 to 40 continuous training sessions, you will see how Fast ForWord improves:


    ·          LISTENING SKILLS for students who are struggling with classroom instruction.
    ·          RECOGNITION OF WORD SOUNDS (phonemic awareness) for students learning how to read and spell.
    ·          THINKING SKILLS for students who have difficulty organizing thoughts and completing their work.
    ·          COMPREHENSION SKILLS for students who need help understanding the structures and patterns of spoken English
    ·          THE LANGUAGE FOUNDATION needed by students who are reading below grade level.
