A brain workout to improve literacy.

The Fast ForWord program is an online reading intervention program designed for students who are struggling with language and reading below grade level.  It is a daily intervention (30-90 minutes) that can be done in your own home.  The program is customized and administrated by a Speech-Language Pathologist who is additionally trained and certified in the Fast ForWord family of products.  Before beginning the program your child is evaluated and the program  is customized to fit their particular skill level and challenges.
