Students in nine of Albany County School District #1's (ACSD) 15 schools will use the Fast ForWord® online reading and language intervention from Scientific Learning Corp, beginning this school year.

According to John Weigel, ACSD’s assistant superintendent of curriculum, instruction and accountability, most schools will use the Fast ForWord program with students who struggle. At Linford Elementary School, a Title I school serving children in grades K-5, all students will work on the program three to five times a week.

“The reasons students struggle are as varied as the students themselves, but much of it comes down to the core cognitive skills that make learning possible. This is why we selected Fast ForWord,” said Weigel. 

The Fast ForWord program was developed by neuroscientists to address reading skills while developing memory, attention, processing, and sequencing skills.
