Reading Recovery is “Proven” Says Promising Practices Network
The University Training Center for Reading Recovery was recently notified that the Promising Practices Network (PPN) has updated information on Reading Recovery and awarded a “proven” rating. PPN reviewed research evidence of programs and practices that are proven to improve outcomes for children. All programs rated are reviewed to ensure evidence of positive effects.
This announcement adds to the number of research reviews that have reported strong evidence of Reading Recovery’s effectiveness. Other review agencies include the What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) in 2007 and 2008, the National Center on Response to Intervention (NCRTI) in 2011, and the National Center on Intensive Intervention (NCII) in 2012.

Reading Recovery is a short-term, scientifically-based, early intervention literacy program designed for children who are at risk of failing to learn to read and write in the first grade. It significantly reduces the number of children with literacy difficulties in schools. Reading Recovery, developed by New Zealand educator Dr. Marie Clay, provides a second chance at literacy learning for the lowest achieving first graders.
- Children meet one-on-one with a specially trained teacher for 30 minutes everyday and are provided individually tailored lessons for 12 to 20 weeks.
- Children become successful readers and writers, working within the average range in their classrooms and continue to make good progress throughout their schooling.
- Reading Recovery significantly reduces the number of children with literacy difficulties, closing the literacy achievement gap.
- Evidence show that children continue to make further gains after Reading Recovery.
