What is a supplemental reading intervention program?

Any student identified with a reading deficiency must be provided a supplemental reading intervention program. A supplemental reading intervention program is an intensive and research-based program of instructional strategies designed to support students in developing critical skills associated with reading. Effective programs are characterized by
skillful instruction, the use of focused strategies informed by data and tailored to specific needs of students, small-group and/or individualized instruction, and the use of ongoing formative assessment, guided practice, and immediate feedback.
