NEPS: Effective Interventions for Struggling Readers
Do you want to know about the latest research into effective interventions for struggling readers?
Do you want to know which interventions have been found to be effective in Irish schools?
Do you want to widen your skills set and deepen your knowledge about literacy difficulties?
Do you want support to administer and interpret standardised tests of literacy and plan interventions based on those assessments?
Previous research by NEPS has shown that Irish teachers can, over the course of a three month intervention, help struggling readers make 12 months progress in both word reading and in reading comprehension. This session will describe the interventions and approaches used. It is also an invitation to schools to participate in a new action research project, planned for 2018. Attendance at this workshop does not imply agreement to participate in the action research project. However, only those who have attended will be eligible to participate. The project will involve the following elements:
- Implementation of a range of evidence based interventions over a period of three months (February to early May 2018),
- Collection by teachers of quantitative and qualitative data, including pre and post intervention data using a standardised reading test, and
- A total of three meetings, to be held in Kilkenny Education Centre, to set-up, monitor and evaluate the project.
This workshop is suitable for Learning Support, Resource and Special Education Teachers working in Primary Schools.
