This research report documents the development of the Reading Recovery Program in the United States from its inception in 1984. The report provides summaries of the various empirical studies that have been conducted. The report concludes that: (1) evidence from the first years of implementation indicates that Reading Recovery has had positive outcomes for children initially determined to be at risk for failure in reading; (2) children retain their gains and continue to make progress at least 3 years after the intervention; (3) classroom teachers and parents have responded positively to the programs; and (4) Reading Recovery Teachers have reported growth in knowledge and in skill in teaching reading.
