Starting off on the right foot for reading

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    Following the demise of the discredited discrepancy model for defining reading disability, whereby children's reading performance was typically compared with their overall general ability, the focus for understanding and, in a sense 'diagnosing' and 'treating', reading disability has turned to the Response to Intervention (RtI) model. Rather than identifying children as having a reading difficulty because their reading performance was significantly inferior to what might be expected from a knowledge of their overall general ability, the RtI model argues for a phased intervention model of increasing support, determined by regular monitoring of the child's reading progress.
