Reading Recovery

Reading Recovery is a well-regarded early literacy intervention that aims to support children who are struggling with literacy skills in the early stages of their educational journey.


The individualised approach and intensive daily instruction provided by specially trained teachers are key components of the Reading Recovery program’s success. The focus on improving students’ literacy skills through targeted support helps them become more confident and proficient readers and writers.


In Ireland, four out of five children who participate in Reading Recovery reach the goal of becoming effective and efficient literacy learners within the average range of classroom performance. This is a testament to the effectiveness of the program in supporting children’s literacy development.
