Research Base for Reading Recovery

  • What is the Research Base for Reading Recovery?

    Reading Recovery is based on substantial research about how children learn to read and write. Its roots are in Marie Clay's research in classrooms and clinics as well as intensive studies from other disciplines. The What Works Clearinghouse independent review of Reading Recovery’s experimental research clearly establishes the effectiveness of the intervention based on scientific evidence.
