Reading Mastery
Students with a Specific Learning Disability

When compared to another Direct Instruction intervention, Horizons, Reading Mastery was found to have no discernible effects on alphabetics and reading comprehension for students with learning disabilities.

Reading Mastery is designed to provide systematic reading instruction to students in grades K–6. Reading Mastery can be used as an intervention program for struggling readers, as a supplement to a school’s core reading program, or as a stand-alone reading program, and is available in three versions. During the implementation of Reading Mastery, students are grouped with other students at a similar reading level, based on program placement tests. The program includes a continuous monitoring component.
