2019-2020 Continuing Certification

The goal of Reading Recovery is to dramatically reduce the number of first-grade students who have extreme difficulty learning to read and write and to reduce the cost of these learners to educational systems.


"If a child is a struggling reader or writer the conclusion must be that we have not yet discovered a way to help him learn."

Dr. Marie M. Clay
