Fast ForWord

Building the brain's learning capacity

Fast ForWord is an online neuroscience programme that builds the brain’s learning capacity making learning easier and faster. 

Fast ForWord automates and strengthens the brain the same way a fit athlete builds muscle memory, through repetition. Each day the student is prompted to answer hundreds of increasingly more difficult exercises in quick succession, using scientifically-based neuroscience principles.

Results are seen in reading and learning. Fast ForWord strengthens both cognitive and fundamental reading and language skills.

Fast ForWord offers computer based programmes designed to help those with learning difficulties that are language based:

  • Dyslexia
  • Dyspraxia
  • Memory
  • Attention
  • Auditory Processing Disorder
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Asperger's Syndrome

Cognitive skills strengthened by Fast ForWord:

  1. Memory – working, short-term and long-term memory are essential for word recognition, comprehension and remembering instructions
  2. Attention – the ability to focus on information and tasks and ignore distractions
  3. Processing Speed – the rate at which we are able to process incoming information. For reading, this is how quickly one can distinguish speech sounds and identify letters and words to create meaning
  4. Sequencing – the ability to determine the order of letters within words or words within sentences

Reading & Language skills strengthened by Fast ForWord:

  • Phonemic awareness
  • Sound-letter association
  • Decoding
  • Vocabulary
  • Spelling
  • Syntax
  • Comprehension
  • Grammatical structures
  • Passage comprehension
  • Reading fluency

Fast ForWord is based on neuroscience research which tells us:

  1. Brains can be trained to re-structure (re-wire)
  2. "Brain Plasticity" is the ability of the brain to change through experience and learning
  3. For the brain to "re-wire", certain conditions must be met, these conditions or "learning principles" have been identified as repetition, adapting to a person’s skill level, motivation and immediate feedback
  4. The brain of a struggling reader differs from the brain of a good reader – this has nothing to do with one’s intelligence
  5. Brain imaging studies show which areas of the brain activate in normal and struggling readers
  6. In struggling readers, critical areas of the brain used for reading are not activated as they are with good readers

Fast ForWord Features:

  1. Intensive – 5 days/week (until completion)
  2. Continually adapts to each individual student’s learning needs
  3. Integrates learning with fun, interactive computer games
  4. Quick, lasting learning gains

Fast ForWord is recommended by speech and language therapists, education psychologists, teachers, medical practitioners, parents, university researchers, neuroscientists, and audiologists.
