Reading Recovery

Reading Recovery is a research-based early intervention program to reduce reading and writing problems. It was developed in New Zealand by educator and psychologist Dame Marie Clay.

Our Reading Recovery program identifies students experiencing reading and writing difficulties after their first year of school and then provides intensive one to one teaching. The early years are critical for students who are at risk of reading difficulties, as this period develops skills for later learning. Without intervention, students often require long-term remedial assistance. By intervening in the second year of school, Reading Recovery can stop the cycle of difficulties for students at risk.  Through intensive daily instruction this will often bring the lowest literacy performers up to average classroom levels within 12 to 20 weeks.

The 30-minute daily Reading Recovery lesson includes activities in text reading and text writing. The program's goal is for students to continue to succeed in a supportive classroom environment without any or very little additional support.
