This research will build on a previous project that was designed to address the gap that exists between research and practice in early reading interventions. This study will address unanswered questions regarding the timing and duration of early intervention needed for maximum benefit and investigate whether responsiveness to treatment is influenced by different beginning skill levels and classroom behavior. The relationship between teacher instruction, school context and student outcomes will also be examined.
