Reading Recovery Europe



Reading Recovery teachers identify the lowest attaining children in literacy, at age five or six, and provide intensive individual lessons, every day for 30 minutes.

The Reading Recovery teacher also works closely with the class teacher, school team and parents to support the children receiving additional help. Once trained, Reading Recovery teachers can also contribute to raising literacy standards across the school.
