About Reading Recovery
Reading Recovery is a research-based, early intervention that can bring the lowest-achieving first graders up to the average reading and writing level of their classmates.  The progression takes place within 12-20 weeks through one-on-one instruction by highly trained Reading Recovery teachers during daily 30-minute tutorials.

Reading Recovery has two successful outcomes:

  • Many of the children who complete a full series of lessons continue learning through regular classroom instruction.
  • Children who do not achieve the expected performance level within the time limit usually make significant gains in learning and are referred for additional services in their schools.
