Phonemic awareness is the ability to understand that spoken words are made up of individual sounds called phonemes, and it's one of the best early predictors for reading success. We believe that explicit, systematic phonological and phonemic awareness instruction is the missing piece in classroom literacy instruction.

- Tutoring programs are those organizations that offer one-on-one and/or small group tutoring directly to students, either in-person, virtually, or through both modes of delivery.
- Technology platforms are technology platforms that facilitate tutoring programs.

This database is intended for Districts, States or nonprofits to identify potential tutoring partners, for potential tutors to identify potential employers and for tutoring organizations to have a clearer understanding of the landscape and to identify interventions that might be useful to their programs, if needed.
Please note that some of these programs are also listed on ProvenTutoring.org where you can find additional information on relevant research studies and costs.

Intervenciones tempranas de la lectura is designed to work comfortably with a variety of existing core programs to provide the significant increase in the intensity of instruction in the critical strands of beginning reading—phonemic awareness, graphophonemic awareness, the structure of language (Spanish), aural language fluency, decoding fluency, and comprehension. Intervenciones tempranas de la lectura is a Spanish language parallel format to SRA Early Interventions in Reading providing language?specific instruction for early reading in the Spanish language. In designing the reading intervention, the developers applied research on the sequence and development of Spanish literacy acquisition to the same instructional design principles used to create Proactive Reading. The result was a curriculum that was different in terms of the sequence and focus of instructional content, but similar in terms of instructional design and delivery. Thus, teachers delivered explicit instruction designed to assist students in the integrated and fluent use of alphabetic knowledge and comprehension strategies. The 120 lessons represent the language?specific progression of skills from kindergarten through the end of first grade.
