Fast ForWard

Fast ForWord is a patented, highly adaptive technology-based program, available K-12, that rapidly builds oral language comprehension skills such as phonemic awareness, auditory processing speed, phonological awareness, working memory, syntax, grammar, sequencing and other critical skills necessary to learn to read or to become a better reader. On average, students with language and reading problems make 1- to 2-year gains in language skills after only 6 to 10 weeks of Fast ForWord training. Reports from teachers and parents have shown that these gains last.
