Reading Recovery is a program designed to provide early intervention for students demonstrating difficulty in learning to read and write. Reading Recovery was developed by New Zealand educator and psychologist, Dr. Marie Clay. Children qualify for the program through input by the classroom teacher and a screening process. In addition to their regular classroom reading, these students who may be experiencing difficulty are provided one-to-one intensive instruction for thirty minutes daily by a teacher who is specially trained in Reading Recovery techniques.
The program engages the child in meaningful literacy activities while developing flexible learning strategies. Most children continue in the program until they have developed effective strategies for independent learning and can function satisfactorily within the average classroom range in reading and writing activities.
