Hit Me Baby One More Time: Reading Intervention Dosage Effects

This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 3
  • Skill Level: Advanced
  • Session 5: Promoting Academic Success

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. develop skills in evaluating intervention efficiency to employ evidence-based interventions that require less resources.
  2. understand the differential effects of treatment dosage on reading fluency outcomes.
  3. develop knowledge in employing peer-mediated academic interventions.


Research has yet to inform practitioners about the effects of academic intervention when the frequency of the administration, referred to as the dosage, is increased or decreased. This presentation will describe a research project that evaluated the differences between two different dosages of a peer-mediated repeated readings intervention on words correct per minute scores. Practitioners will learn how to employ interventions that take less resources and potentially provide quicker results by modifying the intervention dosage.
