Catch Up Literacy Intervention

Research points to the importance of recognising the links between behaviour and academic problems and coordinating systems for prevention and intervention in both areas. From NBSS work in post primary schools it is also clear that the strong connections between academic achievement and behaviour can mean that addressing challenges in one area can reduce difficulties arising in another. Teachers in NBSS partner schools have been trained to deliver Catch Up Literacy which is a structured one-to-one intervention for students who experience difficulties with reading. This resource provides an overview of the intervention.
