Fast ForWord

Students who are not proficient readers by 3rd grade are four times more likely to drop out in high school than proficient readers. With 2 out of 3 students reading below grade level, we are in the midst of a reading crisis. Fast ForWord Reading can help make elementary students become skilled readers, successful learners, effective communicators, and confident individuals.

Fast Track student success

Fast ForWord is an online language and reading intervention software that targets learning struggles at their core, providing 1-2 years of gains in 40-60 hours of use. On Fast ForWord students complete a variety of MAPS exercises that look like reading or pre-reading games. Fast ForWord targets the reading skills of phonemic awareness, phonics, the alphabet, vocabulary, grammar, fluency, and comprehension.

The Fast ForWord Reading program reaches deeper than other reading programs to target the root causes of reading struggles in the brain. It builds stronger readers and lifelong learners by simultaneously strengthening reading skills and their underlying cognitive skills. This strong foundation sets the stage for success in other subject areas and for continued growth even after completing the program.

Oral reading is critical in improving reading fluency, comprehension, and prosody. Reading Assistant Plus™️ is an innovative online guided reading tool and component of the Fast ForWord program that provides intensive reading practice. Learners use the tool to read developmentally appropriate texts both silently and aloud. What makes Reading Assistant Plus such an innovative reading practice tool is its use of patented technology that listens as each word is read aloud and delivers immediate support whenever a learner struggles with or mispronounces a word — reinforcing newly learned reading skills, vocabulary, and fluency.

After a few weeks, 96% of parents report their child is reading better, understanding more, is more focused, completing homework more easily, or has improved in several of these areas simultaneously.
