Reading Difficulties


Is your child a slow or labored reader? Does he or she have poor reading comprehension?  Is it hard for you to get your child to sit down and read? Does your child refuse to read aloud? Many children who have a hard time in school have weak foundational reading skills.

Fast ForWord is an adaptive learning program developed by neuroscientists – it targets the root cause of your child’s reading struggles and makes permanent changes to the brain.

For younger readers (elementary level) our goal is a strong foundation, working up to fluent reading for middle schoolers. For older kids (high school) and adults, we build reading speed and comprehension skills along with metacognition, the ability to understand and think critically while reading.

Fast ForWord works on the following skills, which will give your child a solid foundation for success:


  • Processing Rate

  • Attention

  • Recall & Memory

  • Sequencing

  • Reading and Literacy Skills

  • Vocabulary and Grammar


Inside the Brain of a Struggling Reader


Have you ever wondered why one of your children may struggle with reading, while another may just breeze through it? There are many factors that play into your child's reading struggles, but one that is often overlooked are physical differences in the brain – which can be treatable. 









Our infographic Inside the Brain of a Struggling Reader explains how it's possible to help your child improve their reading skills at a neurological level.

“My son had been using Fast ForWord at school for two years. He went from a 1.5 grade level deficit to now reading 1 grade level ahead. He no longer needs reading intervention.
It's a great program!”
