Fast ForWord Research
The award-winning Fast ForWord program is one of the most highly researched and proven learning programs in existence today.
The Fast ForWord research stretches over 30 years, with over 40,000 participants, 700 white papers, 100 scientific articles and reports, and 8 independent reviews.
As the pioneer of neuroscience-designed programs, the Fast ForWord program has been rigorously researched since its release in 1997. Few programs can claim this level of research.
The original research
Dr Norman Doidge’s best-selling book The Brain That Changes Itself examines the neuroscience revolution and how Fast ForWord was developed.
Fast ForWord programs increased student reading achievement by an average of 22.2 percentage points, the largest average impact of all programs reviewed in the Report.
Who has benefited
Featured: A research study conducted by Stanford University showed increased activation in the areas of the brain associated with reading, spelling and writing after using Fast ForWord, as well as improvements on tests of reading and language. This research was later replicated at Harvard Medical School.
