Evidence-Based Reading Intervention for Struggling Readers and English Language Learners


Developed by neuroscientists, the evidence-based Fast ForWord reading intervention uses a unique 3-part model to directly target and fix the root causes of language and reading difficulty. It provides students with the foundational language and cognitive skills, deliberate practice, and guided reading support they need to make fast improvements, which continue even after they finish the program. The new Fast ForWord is a powerful solution for K-12 intervention, at-home intervention, or clinical support intervention.

Fix Language and Reading Problems Fast: 3-Part Intervention Model


Step 1

Fast ForWord prepares the brain for reading by improving the language and cognitive skills that are often weak in struggling students (MAPS — memory, attention, processing speed, and sequencing).

Step 2

Your students receive personalized, deliberate practice on a wide variety of language and reading skills - more with Fast ForWord than any other approach or intervention. Intensity is the key to getting far better results — fast.

Step 3

As students read aloud, speech verification technology listens and provides real-time corrective feedback.  This oral reading reinforces newly learned reading skills and rapidly builds fluency and comprehension.
