Handbook of Reading Interventions
Date Published: 12/20/2012
ORI Scientist Patricia Vadasy recently co-edited the Handbook of Reading Interventions (O’Connor & Vadasy, 2011, The Guilford Press). The edited volume addresses the developmental span of interventions that support the acquisition and improvement of literacy skills. Researchers engaged in study of specific aspects of reading and writing development summarize the research and describe features of promising interventions. The volume integrates state-of-the art research with instructional principles and applications for general education classrooms and specialized settings. The chapters will be of value as a text in programs preparing literacy teachers and researchers, and a resource for professional development.
