Abstract: The purpose of this study was to review the effectiveness of an early reading tutorial program, known as Intensive Care Assures Reading Enhancement (ICARE). The program was developed by the Davidson County School system (North Carolina) to assist first graders who were experiencing difficulty with reading. The ICARE program was patterned after the Reading Recovery program with an additional phonemic awareness component. The study attempted to determine if students who participated in ICARE would perform at the same level as their peers. Alternatively, the effectiveness of the program was compared to the effectiveness of traditional interventions used in the school system. The study also compared the monetary cost of ICARE to traditional reading intervention programs.
