The Effectiveness of Reading Intervention Programs and RTI Reading Interventions
Reading Intervention is a way to provide proven help to struggling readers. The earlier the intervention takes place the better, but students of any age can benefit from effective reading intervention programs. A great deal of research has been conducted to find the most effective types of reading intervention. While there has been evidence that several different approaches can be effective, the clear conclusion was that when the issues were a deficiency in decoding strategies and phonemic awareness, the prescribed remediation was explicit, sequential, multi-sensory phonics instruction.
There are a few consistent characteristics of successful reading interventions:
- Research based methods are employed
- Students receive individualized instruction
- Students are given sufficient practice
- Students are given guided reading practice in controlled and expository text
- Teachers receive explicit and continued training
- Ongoing assessment directs instruction
- Instruction is fast paced and students experience success early on
