Who Fast ForWord Helps
The program treats processing delays and related difficulties. Here's a simple description of what the Fast ForWord program impacts in students:
- Reading and comprehension, including dyslexia
- Auditory processing deficits
- Inattentive ADD
In children, early intervention for these learning challenges is essential, and we are here to help you along the way. Because the Fast ForWord program improves learning fundamentals, it also helps study skills, autism, Asperger syndrome and, sometimes, traumatic brain injury.

Cognitive Skills First
Both children and adults begin with cognitive programs that build a foundation for the programs to follow. In each session, your child is prompted to make several increasingly complex decisions in quick succession, gradually strengthening processing, focus and memory skills - essential for reading - that are then used in everyday life. This practical application allows you and your child to see enduring progress.

Reading Programs Next
Students then move through an individualized series of reading exercises that develop reading and comprehension skills, gradually moving up the reading pyramid. View a detailed description of the Fast ForWord program.
Fast ForWord is a play on fast for word and fast forward, emphasizing fast results. Rather than working around an underlying difficulty, the program aims to overcome the problem, opening the flood gates to higher achievement. Studies show an average gain of 1-2 years in reading and language skills in just a few weeks. Other studies show continuing gains in the years after Fast ForWord.
