Every Child Deserves to Read

Reach Every Reader is a collaboration with educators, families, researchers, and product developers creating solutions to ensure that every child can unlock the wonder of words and stories.

We are developing tools for educators, families, and children for use in the classroom and at home.

The Reach Every Reader Vision

Reach Every Reader’s vision is that all children will be readers with the skills, knowledge, and interest to read for learning and pleasure. We want every child to succeed, and we don’t want to wait for children to fail before we help them thrive.

We are doing things differently. We are not just studying the problem of early reading – we are solving it.

Areas of Focus

No single solution will reach every reader. We are tackling the problem of poor reading simultaneously from several angles. This cross-disciplinary and multi-institutional effort focuses on developing foundational literacy skills, early screening and diagnosis, content-rich intervention, teacher and caregiver support, and reach for sustainable impact.

Pre-K Home & Family Engagement

Pre-literacy skills can be learned long before children arrive at school! We aim to support this early development through a focus on pre-school-aged children and their caregivers.

K-3 Screener & Assessment

We are taking a holistic approach to the screening and diagnostic assessment of literacy development for children in Grades K-3 to support earlier and more personalized interventions for struggling readers.

K-3 Intervention

We are going beyond the mechanics of reading by also focusing on content knowledge and motivation to support a wide range of developing readers.

Educator & Family Support

Without proper implementation, even the best literacy approaches have limited impact. We are building tools and experiences to support the critical role adults play in a child’s development.

Collaboration & Reach

We want to help every child. To do this, we are designing for wide-spread impact from the start and are working to ensure that what we have to offer will work in a variety of contexts.

Reach Every Reader is a collaboration of the Harvard Graduate School of Education, MIT Integrated Learning Initiative, and Florida State University.

Our Tools

Reach Every Reader is going beyond the research by creating and testing tools to support young emergent readers and the adults who help them throughout their journey. We are testing our tools in multiple contexts and making changes to them as we learn what works well, what doesn’t, and for whom so we can eventually reach EVERY reader.

Pre-K Home & Family Apps

Our apps are designed for children to use with an adult as a way of promoting dialogue–essential for developing pre-literacy skills.
