Improving Reading with Fast ForWord: USA School, Bridges Academy
Veteran educator, Jacqueline Egli, Executive Director of Bridges Academy, a well known not for profit, private school in USA was interviewed recently on the Fox News channel.
She spoke about how Bridges Academy is using neuroscience-based technology to improve reading for students in the school.
“For many of my students in my early days as an educator it might take me three, four, five years to make 6 months of solid improvement, ”she said.
Now her students with reading or learning difficulties use the Fast ForWord program.
Egli says Fast ForWord can improve a child’s reading level by multiple grades in 6 - 8 weeks of training, and MRI scans before & after training show an increase in brain activity in kids with dyslexia.
