6 Week Reading Boost Introduction Video

Who are the ideal students for this trial?

  • Year 3- 12 students who are behind in reading
  • Our health and education professionals will consult with you to determine the correct starting point for each student – Fast ForWord Reading 1, Reading 2, Reading 3, Reading 4 or Reading 5. The selected program will adapt to the individual student’s ability.

How much time should I set aside to achieve the best results?

  • Initial set up: 2 hours
    This includes setting up students in Fast ForWord, completing online training, preparing your classroom, and learning how to support your students.
  • Weekly time investment: 3 hours per week
    Each week, you will spend time working with students on exercises and time to review reports and results. This breaks down as follows:

    • Time with students: 2.5 hours per week
      Students must use the program 30 minutes per day, 5 days per week. Students will need your hands-on encouragement and assistance during this time.
    • Planning and reporting time: 30 mins per week
      30 mins of your time weekly to review and share results.

How do I make this trial successful?

  1. Select struggling readers who attend school regularly so they will adhere to the daily training protocol.
  2. Allocate a ‘Coach’ who is good at motivating and encouraging students. You might even like to consider rewards to incentivise student progress.
  3. Prepare a fun training environment that’s quiet and distraction-free.
  4. Keep an eye on your students’ progress using the intuitive data-analysis tool.
  5. Follow the recommended protocol (30 minutes, 5 days/week) and provide support to ensure your students’ ongoing progress (we’ll show you how).
