  • Memory: Fast ForWord enhances working memory, short and long-term memory. 
  • Attention: Fast ForWord is designed to improve both attention and focus
  • Processing Rate: Fast ForWord increases the rate at which students are able to process information
  • Sequencing: Fast ForWord improves the recognition of the order of sounds, letters, and concepts.
Students who do Fast ForWord exercises strengthen these core skills. After participating in Fast ForWord students are better able to follow instructions, concentrate and participate in classroom discussions. They improve their reading, spelling and comprehension and find they enjoy school more. Their self- confidence increases which can lead to better behaviour and sociability.

Fast
ForWord Works by applying Principles of Brain Science
Brain science has determined the four basic principles that need to be applied for lasting learning to take place. Those principles are built into Fast ForWord:

  • Frequency and Intensity - Exercises done often and intensively accelerate learning
  • Adaptivity - Task difficulty needs to adapt to keep students challenged but not frustrated
  • Simultaneous Development - Cognitive and reading skills must be developed together
  • Timely Motivation - Learners must be motivated to purposely complete their exercises

Why Fast ForWord is Unique

Fast ForWord works on improving the brain’s “hardware” so that teaching and tuition can be better absorbed and retained. It is unlike any other learning program or educational software because it:

  • Adapts exactly to each student’s development needs. Fast ForWord identifies the student’s individual learning weaknesses by analysing their responses to the exercise tasks and continuously adjusts the degree of difficulty to keep the student challenged.
  • Provides short (8 to 12 weeks) concentrated training that produces enduring learning gains. Students can make gains of up to 1 -2 years in reading competency and these gains are maintained without additional training.
  • Is based on proven neuroscience research and is continuously validated by on-going research. Fast ForWord was developed from fundamental research by some of the world’s most eminent neuroscientists. Continuous studies of its use make it the most researched program of its type in the world. It is validated by independent researchers and accepted by the scientific community.
  • Has been used by almost 2 million students in over 40 countries since 1998.
