What Really Matters for Struggling Readers delivers a concise and balanced introduction to reading remediation and intervention programs and the topic of struggling readers.

Nationally recognized scholar and author Dick Allington offers easy-to-understand interpretations of research that support three important principles of effective instructional design and shows teachers how to use a variety of best practices with children who are struggling readers.
