The author explains that the 2004 reauthorization of the U.S. Individuals with Disabilities Act allows public schools to use a certain percentage of funds toward prevention of learning difficulties, and she focuses her attention on reading instruction in the primary grades. She lists the components of effective reading instruction, including phonemic decoding, fluency, and construction of meaning, and examines instructional practices. She defines a core reading program, explains the criteria for selecting core reading materials for diverse classrooms, and provides resources for evaluating core reading programs. The author notes that these programs provide opportunities for enhancing reading instruction for all students in the general education program.
