    I am being hired in Oct. to teach the FastForward Reading program in an elementary school. I know absolutely nothing about it. Is this considered a spec. ed. teaching position? Any details you can give will be very helpful.
    Thank you.

    Fast ForWord is not a reading program, but a computer program that helps kids make brain connections, which in turn helps them read. We have used the program in our school for our special ed kids, and all kids that are below grade level. We had VERY good results with the program and have decided to continue it next year (very expensive). :)
