Free Trial Overview Video

IT’S TIME FOR A BREAKTHROUGH
Struggling readers need 10x more practice than peers to catch up to grade level. Most schools cannot provide this level of intensity, but you’re in luck: Fast ForWord can, and it does. This is why results happen so fast.
This free trial offer just got even better. You will now also get access to Reading Assistant technology, which uses speech verification to listen to your students as they read aloud, dramatically building fluency and comprehension. We are so convinced about the results you’ll see with this combination that we are offering you 4 months’ access!
WHO ARE THE IDEAL STUDENTS FOR THIS TRIAL?
  • K-12 students below grade level in reading
  • Students receiving special education
  • English Language Learners

How much time should I set aside to get the best results?

  • Initial set up: 2 hours
    This includes setting up students in Fast ForWord, completing online training, preparing your classroom and learning how to instruct your students.
  • Weekly time investment: 2.5 hours per week
    Each week, you will spend time working with students on exercises and time to review reports and results. This breaks down as follows:

Time with students: 1.5 hours per week
Students must use the program 30 minutes, 3x/week minimum (5x/week is recommended for optimal results); students may need your hands-on encouragement and assistance during this time!

Planning time: 1 hour per week
1 hour of your time weekly to review and share results!
