What Research Has to Say About Reading Instruction
The Importance of Effective Early Intervention
Dorothy S. Strickland
For a variety of reasons, some young children may struggle to learn to read. Research indicates that difficulty with initial literacy acquisition may lead to less practice and motivation and, hence, to continuing academic struggles. It is therefore important that these children be identified early so that they can be provided with appropriate support. In this chapter, the author describes numerous approaches to early intervention and outlines components of successful programs.
