Fast ForWord research
Does Fast ForWord work?
The award-winning Fast ForWord program is one of the most highly researched and proven learning programs in existence today.
The Fast ForWord research stretches over 30 years, with over 40,000 participants, 700 white papers, 100 scientific articles and reports, and 8 independent reviews.
As the pioneer of neuroscience-designed programs, the Fast ForWord program has been rigorously researched since its release in 1997. Few programs can claim this level of research.
The founding neuroscientists
Fast ForWord is the collaborative work of a group of neuroscientists who have compiled an impressive amount of evidence to prove the efficacy of the Fast ForWord program.
Featured: The Nevada Department of Education commissioned the Leadership and Learning Center (LLC) to conduct an in-depth evaluation of reading programs purchased with department grants. Fast ForWord programs increased student reading achievement by an average of 22.2 percentage points, the largest average impact of all programs reviewed in the Report.
Who has benefited
Featured: A research study conducted by Stanford University showed increased activation in the areas of the brain associated with reading, spelling and writing after using Fast ForWord, as well as improvements on tests of reading and language. This research was later replicated at Harvard Medical School.
Featured: A multi-year study followed more than 500 high school students from 20 schools over the years of their Fast ForWord participation and shows impressive long-term results on the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) which is administered annually throughout Texas and is closely aligned with the state curricular standards.
