A Breakthrough for Struggling Adolescent Readers

Two-thirds of secondary students lack proficient reading skills, leading to struggles with learning, confidence, and behavior. With the release of the Elements series of exercises, Fast ForWord Literacy offers the first reading intervention fully designed to build cognitive and language skills in adolescent learners, resulting in lasting reading gains, social-emotional growth, and improved graduation rates.



We’ve implemented a number of online programs over the last 20 years, and we have found the Fast ForWord program to be the most successful program for our [6th-10th grade] students.”
