The most effective intervention is implemented early in a child’s career- before the cycle of failure is established.
-Irene Fountas & Gay Su Pinnell
I’ve seen early interventions work wonders. I am trained in Reading Recovery and a huge believer in early intervention. As a third grade teacher, I can tell you that the difference between students who received early intervention and those who were allowed to struggle a little longer is huge. HUGE! The sooner we boost up our students the less they fall behind their peers.
What are your thoughts on early interventions?
