Read the Greg Brooks intervention study for information on specific approaches and programs: What Works for Children with literacy difficulties- the effectiveness of intervention - Available to download
This updated edition includes provides information on intervention schemes for children who struggle with reading and writing. But unlike the previous editions, this one is in two distinct parts.
- Part 1 deals with schemes for children aged 5–14 (Years 1–9 in England and Wales) who can be considered ‘mainstream’, that is, they have not been identified as having a specific special educational need, and are not at the point of transition from primary to secondary school.
- Part 2 is almost entirely new: it attempts to go beyond schemes for mainstream children as just defined, to other categories of intervention which have so far largely suffered from neglect. So in Part 2 you will find chapters on schemes designed:
- for children with specific special educational needs, including dyslexia/specific learning difficulty (chapter 4)
- to boost literacy at primary/secondary transition (chapter 5)
- for young people aged 14–18, including those detached from education or training and those who have offended or may be at risk of doing so (chapter 6).
