This project demonstrates an individualized continuous progress reading program for pupils identified as educationally disadvantaged in reading. The program uses Sullivan reading materials, supplemented by other reading activities according to individual need. A daily programed individualized reading period was provided and teachers and aides assisted individual pupils as needed. The major objective of the project was to reduce the number of children who were reading below grade level at the project target schools. Activities specifically designed to meet the objective include: providing facilities, personnel, and materials; selecting pupils who met the project criteria; providing inservice training for project teachers concerning the use of Behavioral Research Laboratories reading materials; evaluating pupil needs and prescribing a related program; and providing continuous monitoring of pupil progress. The evaluation findings indicated that project pupils, especially those in kindergarten and grades 1 and 2, were by and large meeting major and specific performance objectives; criterion-referenced progress test objectives were all being met; and the number of children reading below grade level was reduced considerably.
