Reading Recovery - Response to Intervention (RTI)

  • Reading Recovery meets the criteria for a “scientifically research-based” intervention under the RTI requirements. It is a significant component of a Comprehensive Intervention Model which offers small group and one-on-one interventions to meet the needs of struggling learners.
  • As an ideal response to the IDEA’s framework for early intervening services, Reading Recovery serves as a “second chance” at literacy learning and a pre-referral intervention for children who may need longer-term specialist help.
  • The data collection process employed in Reading Recovery provides an essential component in the RTI framework by providing important evidence of instruction and learning. Each year, Reading Recovery reports data on each of the more than 100,000 children served. Evaluation reports demonstrate that it can be successfully implemented in a variety of schools.
