Fast For Word - Secondary Education

Fast ForWord® Secondary Education Products 

Every day secondary school teachers are faced with the challenge of trying to educate students who struggle to read, while the complex cognitive work required increases with each academic level.

Because reading requires many different events to take place simultaneously in the brain, our secondary education products are designed to strengthen existing cognitive skills and provide an effective and enduring literacy foundation for bringing secondary students up to reading proficiency.

Fast ForWord products exercise and develop the processing efficiency and literacy skills that secondary students needs to read, listen, think, and participate successfully in the classroom.  Teachers note many important benefits beyond reading, such as better focus, better attitude, and even better scores in subjects other than reading
