Reading Recovery

July 19, 2022

Most children enter grade one happily looking forward to learning how to read and write. Yet experience and research tell us that some will encounter difficulty and are unlikely to learn to read well without intensive teaching. Reading Recovery offers effective short-term early literacy teaching designed to help children become competent readers and writers in just weeks. We offer Reading Recovery in French (IPLÉ - Intervention préventive en lecture-écriture).

Reading Recovery instruction focuses on the lowest achieving children early and provides individually designed lessons delivered by a specially trained teacher. Children who have not responded well to classroom instruction in Kindergarten and grade one, and who have not developed effective patterns of literacy learning, can make accelerated progress and be successfully brought to the average level of the classmates. They are then able to benefit from classroom instruction.
