Completely redesigned, our new LANGUAGE v2 series includes fun, engaging characters ready to motivate your students to achieve their personal best.
In addition, new built-in supportive tools help struggling students achieve success more quickly. As they build confidence, they will experience faster progress and even better results.
Our Research and Development Teams utilized outcomes from over 50,000 students to ensure these new versions would be even more effective at helping Elementary Special Education students and English Language Learners become better readers and succeed in the classroom.
And with new content and design features, the LANGUAGE v2 series supports a Response to Intervention (RtI) approach.
To accelerate reading progress, Fast ForWord Language to Reading v2 develops critical brain processing efficiency in four key areas:
MySciLEARN™ reports for Fast ForWord enable educators to monitor student performance at the individual, classroom/group, school, and district level.
Educators get clear, daily, action-oriented information showing student progress over time in reading and cognitive skills areas, as well as gains reports that correlate to nationally recognized normed assessments. It’s one of the reasons why our learning acceleration programs have been so successful in helping schools and districts meet state and federal mandates.
The Success Forecast allows you to explore the potential effects that the Fast ForWord program can have on your district’s reading proficiency levels in as little as one year. Build a plan for your district based on your reading gain achievements and real-world data from thousands of Fast ForWord participants from your state and across the nation.
Fast ForWord Language to Reading v2 software is a reading intervention product that builds foundational reading and language skills to help districts move special needs learners to successful learners in the general classroom.
Fast ForWord Language to Reading v2 software is for elementary education institutions and clinical specialists worldwide whose students are reading two or more years below grade level.
Learners can realize achievement gains of 1-2 years in as little as 8-12 weeks and maintain an accelerated rate of learning even after the programs end. Longitudinal research shows that the increase in the rate of learning is permanent over time, closing the achievement gap.
In addition, students often exhibit enhanced self-confidence, better communication, greater interest in learning, and improved mental agility and alertness, after working on Fast ForWord products.
Scientific Learning Progress Tracker, an accountability tool, provides real-time monitoring of individual and group performance on the Fast ForWord exercises.
Teachers can receive automatic emailed reports with specific recommendations for instructional intervention. Administrator reports provide disaggregated data for groups of students, making it easy to monitor progress toward AYP goals.
Just as physical exercise increases muscle strength and efficiency, Fast ForWord Language to Reading software exercises the brain, increasing its ability to learn better and faster. Each exercise targets and develops the processing efficiency needed for successful reading and learning.
Fast ForWord Language to Reading v2 software uses proven brain science principles to develop essential learning skills in the four key areas of memory, attention, processing rate, and sequencing. These are the underlying skills required for reading and learning.
The learning principles behind the exercises—frequency and intensity, adaptivity, simultaneous development, and timely motivation—are maximized by state of the art technology that is based on more than 30 years of research on how the brain learns.
It sounds different, doesn’t it? That’s because Fast ForWord (Fast ForWord Language to Reading v2 for elementary students in the demo below) uses patented technology to slow and amplify the specific hard-to-process sounds of the English language. Children start with exercises that help them perceive and process speech sounds appropriately, while simultaneously building grammar, comprehension, and vocabulary. Research shows that this bottom-up approach leads to improved language and reading skills, in just a few months.
Once the foundation is solid, students continue with a series of Fast ForWord Reading products to build critical reading skills, develop advanced reading comprehension, and expand vocabulary.View Reading Level 1 exercises.
