When a child struggles to read, take it personally. Then take action.


Children who are having extreme difficulty learning to read and write deserve to have educators make every effort possible to ensure their success.  Reading Recovery, and in Spanish, Descubriendo la Lectura, are short-term early interventions designed to support classroom instruction for the lowest-achieving children in first grade -- those having difficulty learning to read and write.
