The Reading Intervention Program

This scheme is based on the theory, and evidence supporting it, that it is the combination of phonological training and reading that is important for helping poorer readers. The original research was conducted in Cumbria, and the programme developed from it, Sound Linkage,is a key element within the intervention. The scheme has been used very widely, especially in North Yorkshire, and the research team behind it have used the scheme, and developments of it, with various groups of children with severe literacy difficulties. A variant called 'Reading for Meaning' (or README for short) which incorporated extra work on vocabulary and oracy produced good gains in comprehension for Y4 children whose comprehension was well below their reading fluency. Another variant was used in the world's first randomised controlled trial conducted with children with Down's syndrome; they made modest progress that was nevertheless useful for them.
