How does the program work?
 

Fast ForWord uses the principles of neuroplasticity, adapts to each learner and enhances cognition, while simultaneously building language and reading skills.  The ability to read starts with how the brain perceives and processes sound and progresses through comprehension. The program builds the brain's super-highway for reading and learning.
