Title:  Read Naturally
Description: In the topic area of Students with Learning Disabilities, the What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) has released an Intervention Report on Read Naturally, a program designed to improve reading fluency using a combination of books, audiotapes, and computer software. The study that meets WWC evidence standards includes 20 students with learning disabilities in grades 4 through 6 in one elementary school in Washington State. Based on the review of the research, the WWC found Read Naturally to have a small extent of evidence, potentially positive effects on writing, and no discernible effects on reading fluency for students with learning disabilities.
