Cumbrian Modified Reading Intervention

The Dyslexia Myth heavily promoted a system of teaching reading that was developed by Peter Hatcher and initially implemented in Cumbria, UK. Cumbrian County Council has details on the Reading Intervention program as it is implemented in their region. The approach taken by North Yorkshire Local Education Authority and featured in ‘The Dyslexia Myth’ was the School-based Intervention Programmes for Children with Speech & Language.
York University carried out a comparison between the Reading Intervention (RI) system developed by Peter Hatcher and Department of Education’s Early Literacy Support (ELS) approach. They found that both were successful in raising enabling six year olds struggling with reading to catch-up with their peers. There was some difference in between the two systems but these were marginal compared to their overall success.
Part of the Reading Intervention system called Sound Linkage can be purchased from Amazon.
