About Fast ForWord®
The Fast ForWord® program by Scientific Learning develops and strengthens memory, attention, processing rate, and sequencing—the cognitive skills essential for learning and processing skills necessary for modulation of behavior, as well as school and reading intervention program success. The strengthening of these skills results in a wide range of improved critical language and reading skills such as phonological awareness, phonemic awareness, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, decoding, working memory, syntax, grammar, and other skills necessary for learning and becoming a better student.

Fast ForWord® Works To Enhance Brain Plasticity
Scientific Learning products are based on over 30 years of foundational research into how the brain learns. Brain plasticity refers to the brain’s ability to change at any age throughout life. Boosting the brain's ability to process information through intense exercises and activity can cause permanent physical changes in the brain. An increase in "gray matter" will strengthen connections and new neural connections will result in a change in sensory processing and learning abilities. Fast ForWord® products are based on proven neuroscientific research and are delievered as a series of computer based exercises which can be done in the clinic or at home.
The Fast ForWord® program consists of a series of computer-delivered brain exercise "games" which improve academic achievement with a variety of student populations, including those who are At-Risk, in Special Education and General Education Students who want to improve their ability to process information. These products are validated by independent researchers, accepted by the scientific community, and backed by years of research.
