WHY IT WORKS
Why Fast ForWord Home Works
Fast ForWord was developed in a university lab 20 years ago and we stay true to those roots. In fact, we continue to be independently researched, with new studies published in peer-reviewed journals confirming our science and results.
Some of our favorite independent research comes from Stanford and Harvard and shows actual physiological changes in the brain after struggling readers used Fast ForWord. Look below at the brains of proficient readers and struggling readers. See the difference? One has more concentrated activity in certain areas.
Stanford and Harvard Research
Independent researchers at Stanford and Harvard found that brains of struggling readers became more like those of typical readers after they used Fast ForWord’s reading intervention program. There was increased activation in brain areas critical for reading after struggling readers completed 8 weeks of Fast ForWord.
The averaged fMRI data shown illustrates how the brain activity of children with dyslexia came to resemble the brain activity of proficient readers after Fast ForWord. Likewise, behavioral tests showed improved reading and language performance as well.
Fast ForWord addresses the core causes of your child's learning difficulties by targeting foundational auditory processing, phonemic awareness, language, memory and attention skills. It is one of the most powerful and unique reading interventions ever created.
