The purpose of this research synthesis is to explore some of the effective reading interventions for elementary-aged students. Reading is a fundamental skill that is acquired during these early years, and if students are not able to read proficiently, they often fall behind in other subjects as well. While there are many academic articles addressing reading intervention strategies for children, a cohesive literature review that considers all aspects of intervention is nonexistent. Ryan & Bernard’s (2003) techniques to identify themes are used to analyze the literature in this synthesis. The components of the literature are broken down into the skills for reading, fluency, and comprehension. Through the analysis of the articles, such themes as the duration, age, and focus of intervention are all important aspects to consider. It is important that educators are aware of skills and strategies they can use for struggling elementary-aged readers.
