Reading Rescue™ is a literacy intervention program that provides schools with professional training that prepares staff members to accelerate literacy among the lowest performing students in grades 1-2. Reading Rescue™ brings expertise in literacy intervention into schools; not only do the students who are tutored excel, but our training provides school staff members with a clinical experience in literacy development, and the combination of training, daily program implementation, and ongoing support significantly enhances pedagogical knowledge and skills.
