Reading Recovery

Reading Recovery is an early intervention program, for up to 20 weeks, for Year 1 students who are experiencing difficulties in learning to read and write after one year of instruction. Participating students have individual daily half-hour lessons with a trained Reading Recovery teacher. It is supplementary to the ongoing activities of the classroom and it brings these children to a level where they can be full participants in Year 1 learning. Parents will be kept informed of children's progress throughout the program.

When daily, intensive programming is not achieved, such as through prolonged or intermittent absence of the child, the quality of the teaching and the outcomes of the program are seriously affected. Therefore the commitment and support of parents is very important in ensuring the children’s regular attendance.
