What is Corrective Reading?
Corrective Reading is usually utilized for students in grades 4 and up. The research supports the use of Corrective Reading with students with learning disabilities, intellectual disabilities, and autism spectrum disorder.
Explicit, step-by-step lessons are organized around two strands, Decoding (sounding out) and Comprehension, which may be used separately or together to customize instruction for individual student needs.
Each strand of Corrective Reading has four levels that go from foundation skills for students who aren’t reading words yet up to reading comprehension of seventh-grade-level material.
Who Benefits from Corrective Reading?
Students who benefit from the Corrective Reading Program often struggle with one or more of the following when reading: mispronouncing words, confusing similar words, adding in or leaving out words, lack of attention to punctuation, and/or trouble comprehending what they are reading.
The program is also effective with students who struggle with attention, or recalling directions.
Skills Taught and Program Goals
Decoding lessons range from instruction in letter sounds and blending to the reading of passages from content-area books.
