Infographic: Getting Children Ready to Read

Now in its fifth year, the Nemours BrightStart! partnership with Florida’s Duval County Public School District continues to improve the reading readiness scores of pre-K students at risk for reading failure. During the 2012-2013 school year, nearly 200 children participated in the Nemours BrightStart! small-group intervention program. By the end of the year, the children participating in the program saw a 125 percent gain in reading readiness scores, compared to a 32 percent gain by their peers who did not receive the intervention. The intervention helped to close the reading readiness performance gap noted in the beginning of the school year.
