Teaching Struggling Readers Foundational Reading Skills

Although most children who struggle to learn to read do not outgrow their reading difficulties, many achieve very good outcomes with effective long-term remediation. In the past two decades, more and more good quality research has been published examining what works for children and adolescents with dyslexia and other reading difficulties. General principles of effective remediation for struggling readers can now be identified. My own research group has contributed to this progress.
