Research

Closing the Achievement Gap for Reading Success

Nemours® BrightStart! has demonstrated a significant impact on helping children get ready for kindergarten through rigorous research conducted with thousands of children. The program has proven effective with all types of struggling learners, as well as Dual Language Learners (DLLs). DLLs often struggle with reading and academic achievement, at enormous cost both to individuals and to our educational systems.

Unique Service. Extraordinary Results.

Overall from 2005-2012, over 13,000 pre-kindergarteners have been screened, with over 3,300 receiving the Nemours® BrightStart! program directly from Nemours® BrightStart! professionals. Upon completion of the program, two-thirds have moved to the age-appropriate range in reading readiness, and participants gained an average of 114 percent on their reading readiness scores. Results have been published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Learning Disabilities (2009 and 2011). Numerous other papers and studies are underway.

Consistently Strong. Documented Results.

What is even more impressive is that these results appear to be sustained after three years, as evidenced by our longitudinal follow-up data. Additionally, to scale the program in other communities, early childhood educators nationwide have been trained to implement the program themselves. The vast majority are achieving the same magnitude of results as Nemours® BrightStart! professionals.

Closing The Achievement Gap

About

A Bright Start for Every Child

Reading failure affects thirty percent or more of our nation's children. Forty percent of children enter kindergarten lacking the early literacy skills needed for reading success. Studies have shown that literacy level is the strongest single predictor of adult health status. However, reading failure is also a major child health issue that can affect all aspects of a child's development.

Nemours® BrightStart!, a unique program that combines research, clinical and early childhood expertise, researches, develops and offers evidence-based tools targeting young children at risk for reading failure. Our goal is to effectively instruct children at the very beginning of their reading journey to ensure long-term reading success.

Early Intervention to Prevent Reading Failure

Evidence is overwhelming that the foundation for successful reading is built in the early years, when a young child's brain is highly responsive, adaptable and attuned to learning language. In fact, if a child is not reading at grade level by the end of first grade, that child has only about a 10 percent chance of reading at grade level by the end of fourth grade.

Nemours® BrightStart! builds on this evidence by beginning its literacy work at an early age. This is the most effective preventive action against reading failure.

What makes us different?

  • Research and evidence-based
  • Failure Free-Instruction builds confidence and self-esteem
  • Includes explicit, systematic instruction for teacher and child
  • Provides sequenced and scaffolded learning opportunities
  • Uses a multisensory, brain-based approach to learning
  • Increases fidelity between teachers
  • Best Practices include modeling, demonstration, practice, repetition and review
