Why is Fast ForWord Different from Other Learning Programs?

Fast ForWord uniquely combines neuroscience technology and education.

The exercises are not a band aid. They help your child become a better learner. So they are more able and efficient in processing information.

The exercises are proven to improve memory, attention, processing speed and sequencing - all essential cognitive skills for reading and comprehension.

Does Fast ForWord teach reading in the same way as other programs?

No. Besides cognitive skills the exercises develop language fundamentals such as listening, phonemic awareness and phonics. Essential fundamentals for all readers

Are the benefits permanent? Will my child need to repeat the program?

The use of neuroscience technology makes permanent changes to the brain. The cells that "fire together wire together" allowing the student to move onto more more challenging exercises

Unlike other programs your child will have a personalised course. The software adapts to his or her individual needs and strengths.

How do the exercises automatically adapt for my child?

Using AI the exercises use metrics of progress to focus on needs and move  on from areas of competency. Thus avoiding needless effort and boredom.
