The article discusses a study by the FPG Child Development Institute at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill which indicates that an approach called Recognition & Response, which is based on the response to intervention method, helped to promote language and literacy skills in preschoolers. The method uses regular monitoring of children's progress and extra support for those who need it. Children in the study who received intervention made faster progress than those who did not.
