About Fast ForWord


Have you tried a bunch of different reading interventions for your child? Feel like you're spinning your wheels? Most reading and learning programs, including tutoring, work around the underlying delays that cause reading difficulties. They are coping tools, band-aids that make temporary improvements not unlike pumping air into a slow leaking tire.


Fast ForWord® is different. It is a research-based reading intervention software that can help struggling readers from elementary to high school, pay attention longer, process information faster, and comprehend what they're reading. In other words, it can make a fast and permanent change to your child's foundational processing, attention and working memory skills. Fast ForWord can give your child a second chance to become an expert learner and reader from home.


Who does it help?
Fast ForWord has been proven by extensive research to help children with auditory processing disorder (APD), reading difficulties, dyslexia, autism, attention deficits (ADD &ADHD), language difficulties or delays, and learning disabilities.

Why Use Fast ForWord?


1. Address the root causes of reading issues, instead of working around them.


2. Fast change, enduring results.
See change and improvement in as little as 2 months.


3. Make permanent changes to the brain. Improvements continue long after your child completes the program.

 Up until this summer I really had been rattled with worry and complete confusion as to how to best help my son. I know he has a tremendous amount of work ahead of him but I have peace in knowing that we (as his parents) have him on the right path. ”
