  Fast Forward

"Since my daughter has started FastForWord, I have noticed that her reading has improved. I see less frustration and outbursts.  She loves playing the games and the time goes by quickly.  I don't have a fight on my hands getting her to do her 30 minute sessions.  I can't wait to see how much she improves with the next level"
