What is Fast Forword® ?

Do you find that sometimes you or your child can –

    • struggle with reading and retention?
    • struggle with spellings or numerical calculations?
    • find it hard to stay focused and take in key information?
    • have difficulty speaking clearly and eloquently?
    • lack confidence in social situations or in class?
    • get frustrated or even emotional when learning?

Fast Forword® is a series of fun and interactive home e-learning programs that are currently transforming the lives of thousands of children and adults across the UK.

Fast Forword® is also used in a number of schools including special needs schools.

It is the result of over 30 years of scientific research into how we learn and it makes a difference by developing and strengthening essential cognitive skills (sometimes Fast Forword® is called a ‘brain fitness programme’).

It is suitable for those who need a little extra help, right through to the severely dyslexic or autistic. A completed Fast Forword® training program brings improvements in –

Language and words – word confidence, pronunciation, vocabulary spontaneity and, ability to listen, retain information, answer questions, follow a conversation and contribute.

Reading – reading speed, confidence and ability to take in written information.

Self confidence – memory for detail, ability to participate in or speak to a group or class and overall performance at work or in school.

Numeracy – number processing, understanding and calculations.

Individualized and Differentiated

Each learner using the Fast ForWord® program is placed at the right starting level based on my recommendation, then follows a differentiated learning path that adapts with every click of the mouse. This ensures that each participant gets the individualized instruction they need.


The online Fast ForWord® program is easy to use across settings, including home and the classroom. Learners can use the program anytime and anywhere!

Detailed graphs show progress at a very detailed level. I am able to respond immediately when a learner needs extra support to progress.
