Fast ForWord - The Importance of Brain Fitness in Education

The spring and summer months are the perfect time to enroll your struggling reader in grades K-12 in a scientifically proven reading program that raises your student one complete grade level. Fast ForWord can be done by remote from your home with our guidance and weekly telephone meetings, over holiday breaks and summer vacation. We have had the pleasure of seeing several of our students make tremendous gains with Fast ForWord products. Call for pricing options.

Just as exercise of the body promotes physical fitness, so does the proper exercise of the mind promote brain fitness. The latest neuroscience confirms that the brain can reinvent and reconfigure itself throughout life and not just during the formative years. With frequent, proven brain fitness exercises every learner can become a successful lifelong learner.

 What is Brain Fitness?

Just as exercise promotes physical fitness, exercising our brain improves brain fitness in four critical areas:

  • Memory
  • Attention
  • Processing
  • Sequencing

Exercises that work these cognitive "muscles" provide valuable benefits to learners:

  • Accelerated acquisition of knowledge
  • Better ability to utilize and organize information to which they have already been exposed
  • Readiness to embark upon an improved trajectory of lifelong learning

Together, brain fitness activities and good instructional practices create an optimal learning environment where students can reach their full potential.

Brain Fitness & Optimal Learning

In our national effort to accelerate learning for all students, conversations have focused primarily upon two points:

  • Curriculum standards
  • Strategies for individualizing instruction to give learners optimal and repeated exposure to content they haven’t mastered

While these objectives are critically important, they do not directly address the needs of many struggling students:

  • Learners who have difficulty paying attention to instruction
  • Learners who have difficulty remembering what they are taught

They also do not address the cognitive challenge faced by nearly every learner from English language learners to learners at grade level and above:

  • The inability to process information in one or more subject areas as quickly as it is being presented.
  • The loss of confidence that follows these difficulties can negatively impact motivation and harm overall academic performance.
