Intervention is an essential tool for ensuring that all students receive the targeted instruction they need to overcome reading difficulties. While some students may never need intervention, for others it provides a lifeline to a successful future.
To ensure its effectiveness, an intervention framework must provide a multilayered effort to ensure that every student receives what he or she needs in order to develop to full potential as a fluent, independent reader. When executed well, intervention instruction can make a significant difference in the educational trajectories of students.
This white paper explores and describes the best practices of high-quality reading interventions, with the goal of supporting educators in evaluating their RTI implementations.
