Developed in 1984 by Dr. Marie Clay, Reading Recovery® is a highly effective short-term intervention of one-to-one tutoring for low-achieving first graders. The intervention is most effective when made available to all students who need it and when used as a supplement to good classroom teaching. In Reading Recovery®, individual students receive lessons from specially trained teachers.
Southeast Missouri State University has been a Reading Recovery® site since 1991 and since 1997 has received bipartisan state support as part of the Missouri Statewide Early Literacy Intervention Program (MSELIP).
