Achieve 1-2 Academic Years in 8-12 Weeks with Fast ForWord

Academy Northwest and Family Academy Online will be making Fast ForWord available beginning early in 2013. Scientific Learning’s Fast ForWord develops and strengthens memory, attention, processing rate, and sequencing – the cognitive skills essential for reading. By strengthening these skills, we see improvement in a wide range of critical and reading skills such as phonological awareness, phonemic awareness, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, decoding working memory, syntax, grammar, and other skills necessary to learn how to read or to become a better reader. In over 250 studies, research indicates that learners can see achievement gains of 1-2 years in as little as 8-12 weeks. While Fast ForWord is a literacy based program, studies that monitor progress in other areas of the curriculum confirm that it also improves other areas because Fast ForWord teaches one how to learn. Fast ForWord is definitely based on the now, well accepted concept of neuroplasticity that extends throughout life. Interactive activities of this program follow the important concepts of short, frequent, intense (i.e. full focus) that distinguish neuroplasticity. Fast ForWord is a learning accelerator with recommended protocols of 30, 40 or 50 minutes 4-5 times a week.

Those who would benefit from Fast ForWord include:

  1. Beginning Learners.
  2. Struggling Learners.
  3. English Language Learners.
  4. College-bound Learners.
  5. Learners preparing for GED and college entrance exams.
  6. Any Learner.
