Improving Oral Reading Fluency with a Peer-Mediated Intervention
Hofstadter-Duke, Kristi L.; Daly, Edward J., III
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v44 n3 p641-646 Fall 2011
This study examined the effects of an experimentally derived, peer-delivered reading intervention on the oral reading fluency of a first-grade student who had been referred for poor reading fluency. Same-grade peers were trained to lead the target student through a structured intervention protocol based on the results of a brief experimental analysis. Results indicated that reading improvements were obtained and are discussed in terms of selecting efficient interventions for use by peers. (Contains 2 figures.)
