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. It has been used by millions around the world.

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 different from other interventions because it strengthens the key pathways in the brain that help children learn, so they can pay closer attention to their teachers, absorb information faster, and remember what they are taught.

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.
