Early Reading Intervention
"An early reading intervention program is one that identifies, through assessment,
students at risk of reading failure when they enter school. Students receive
intense one-on-one instruction designed to accelerate their growth in reading"
(Dunn, 2000, pamphlet). There are several key components to successful
early reading intervention programs:
- Occurs at the onset of schooling.
- Ongoing assessment directs instruction.
- Intervention instruction is frequent, regular, and of sufficient duration
to make a difference.
- Instruction includes reading familiar text, word study, writing that supports
reading, and application of skills and strategies to new material.
- On-going training for staff providing instruction
- Instruction is fast paced.
- Students build confidence and view themselves as readers and writers.
(Dunn, 2000; Pikulski, 1998).
