Corrective Reading

Corrective Reading is designed for students who read without understanding or misidentify, reverse or omit words.

Corrective Reading decoding programs are appropriate for students who do not read accurately or for less fluent readers who cannot focus their attention on what text means.

Students are given an entry test at the beginning of the year and work through that level until the end of the level. Then the student is retested for improvement levels.


Key Features

  • Tightly sequenced lessons provide the structure and practice struggling readers need to master high-priority skills and strategies.
  • Briskly paced, teacher-directed instruction and special presentation techniques engage reluctant readers.
  • Ongoing assessment enables you to adjust pacing, provide immediate feedback and offer meanigful reinforcement.
  • Built-in management rewards hard work and creates enthusiasm by showing students how much they have improved.
