Founded in 1996, Scientific Learning Corporation produces Fast ForWord family of products. It is a series of computer-delivered reading intervention products that build learning capacity by developing the neurocognitive skills required to read and learn effectively. These foundational skills are built through a series of brain-based exercises that create enduring results. Based on more than 30 years of neuroscience and cognitive research, the Fast ForWord products use patented technology and applications of accepted neuroscience principles to help children, adolescents and adults build the language and reading skills recognized as the keys to all learning. The exercises align with the reading-research guidelines and the requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act. Independent researchers evaluating the results of standardized achievement tests have confirmed the efficacy of the products. The company's products are offered through educators in public and independent schools, as well as professionals in clinical practice.
