Reading & Literacy Intervention

Support struggling readers and build their confidence and comprehension skills. Our Reading Intervention programs provide intensive, small-group instruction for students struggling with grade level content and concepts. Catapult Learning’s reading and literacy intervention programs include:

  • Explicit instruction in phonemic awareness, phonics, reading fluency, vocabulary development, and reading comprehension

  • A diagnostic and prescriptive approach that creates a personalized learning plan to guide instruction and differentiation

  • Shared reading, guided reading, and text analysis

  • Literacy-focused instruction in reading, writing, speaking, and listening

  • Formative assessment and on-going growth monitoring


Introduce new readers to concepts of print, strengthening essential reading skills and teaching strategies. The flexibility in our curriculum enables teachers to tailor instruction as students become more confident and their reading skills improve.

Transition students from learning to read to reading to learn.


Our reading intervention programs, Achieve Literacy (for grades K-5) and AchieveReading (for grades 6-8) accelerate literacy growth and improve oral language. Our programs are run by a local team and staffed by local teachers trained in our proprietary reading intervention curriculum. We provide continuous professional development to integrate research-based instructional practices into our teaching. Our materials include teacher lesson manuals, student resource books, and leveled texts designed specifically for intervention.

Develop student literacy skills through our diagnostic and prescriptive approach. We identify skill gaps and target specific goals with research-based strategies and best practices that focus on key areas identified by the National Reading Panel. Our curriculum is designed to develop students’ skills across the 5 pillars of reading:
