The purpose of this article is to highlight the importance of providing reading interventions that are differentiated and aligned with an individual student’s most foundational reading need. The authors present profiles of different readers and suggest three principal areas for support: decoding words, reading at an appropriate rate, and comprehending text. In addition to describing differentiated interventions, related classroom instructional techniques are also recommended.
