Fast ForWord is an online intervention that dramatically improves language and reading achievement It is different from other interventions because it strengthens the key pathways in the brain that help children learn, so they can pay closer attention to their teachers, absorb information faster, and remember what they are taught.  The program addresses reading and language skills while concurrently developing foundational cognitive skills like memory, attention, processing, and sequencing.  These cognitive skills are central to all learning, resulting in improved outcomes for reading and other subjects areas, too.  Fast ForWord is different from other reading interventions because the product was designed by neuroscientists who are experts in how the brain learns.

The Reading Assistant online reading software provides individualized online reading coaching for every student.  Reading Assistant helps students rapidly strengthen vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension, maximizing their ability to read to learn.

Students of diverse ages and ability levels can benefit, including English language learners, struggling readers, and more advanced readers who are reading on grade level.

Things that happen that shouldn’t happen and things that should happen that don’t happen.
