The Truth About Reading Recovery®: Response to Cook, Rodes, & Lipsitz (2017) from the Reading Recovery Council of North America

The Reading Recovery Council of North America


In an article appearing in Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, authors Cook, Rodes, and Lipsitz (2017) make multiple misleading, misguided, and blatantly false claims about Reading Recovery® in yet another attack to discredit the most widely researched early reading intervention in the world. When you’re recognized as a leader with proven success, you often become the target for those with limited knowledge who apply broad strokes and twist the truth to fit their own perceptions of reality. The unfortunate reality, in this case, is that this article, “The Reading Wars and Reading Recovery: What Educators, Families, and Taxpayers Should Know,” is an affront to researchers, scholars, educators, and others who know the facts and a disservice to parents of children with reading difficulties.
