The Case for Late Intervention:
Once A Good Reader Always A Good Reader
Stephen D. Krashen
The current trend in literacy education is early intervention. This is based
on the assumption that once a child is behind, he or she will always be
behind. There is, however, no evidence that there is a critical period
for learning how to read and there is strong evidence that we can learn
to read anytime. Once a poor reader, always a poor reader should be replaced
with once a good reader, always a good reader.
