Reading Recovery
Program Purpose
Reading Recovery logo
Reading Recovery® is a research-based literacy intervention program designed to reduce the number of first-grade students with reading and writing difficulties. In addition to regular classroom reading instruction, low-achieving students receive daily individual instruction designed to accelerate reading and writing achievement to average grade level. Reading Recovery® is designed for students whose reading scores fall in the lowest 25% of the first grade classroom.

Achieving Potential
The adequate provision of Reading Recovery® in a school means that in terms of literacy: 
  • Equity can be achieved and maintained 
  • Every student can be helped to reach full potential 
  • Every student can have access to the best possible learning opportunities 
  • Students needing long-term literacy support are identified early
