Reading Recovery is an effective early literacy intervention designed to significantly reduce the number of children with literacy difficulties in schools. Reading Recovery provides daily one to one teaching with a specially trained teacher for children making the slowest progress in literacy learning after a year at school. It is supplementary to classroom instruction.
Reading Recovery is supported and significantly funded by the New Zealand Ministry of Education as part of the National Literacy Plan.
Developed in New Zealand, Reading Recovery is now widely implemented in English speaking countries throughout the world.
