Reading Recovery Australia

Working in partnership with schools

Reading Recovery Australia works with schools to ensure the competencies necessary for a literate future for all young children.

Reading Recovery is an early literacy intervention that provides a second chance for at-risk Year One students, who are struggling with learning to read and write. Reading Recovery identifies students early, before problems become entrenched.
