Preventing Reading Difficulties in Young Children

The National Academy Press has released a prepublication copy of this National Research Council report, which calls for "ensur[ing] that all children are equipped with the skills and instruction they need to learn to read." According to one of the report's authors, "We need the will to ensure that every child has access to excellent preschool environments and well-prepared teachers. Because reading is such a complex and multifaceted activity, no single method is the answer. It is time for educators, parents, and everyone else concerned with children's education to make sure that children have all the experiences that research has shown to support reading development." The press release accompanying the report lays out its basic findings, which can also be found in the executive summary of the report. The press release also connects to a full text version of the report, available as individual page images (print quality varies) at this time. Purchasing information is also available.
