Reading Intervention Programs


Research-based reading programs for struggling readers build confidence and fluency

HMH’s hybrid, flexible approach meets all students’ needs. From instructions to ingredients to road signs, reading is an essential life skill. Yet for too many children, reading is a struggle. When a student is one or more grade levels behind or needs help with specific strategies, evidence-based reading intervention programs offer teachers additional support.

Our literacy intervention offerings are right for striving readers, multilingual learners, and special education students. These solutions address the needs of the whole student, promoting a growth mindset for emotional, social, and academic development.
