Approved List of Evidence-Based Reading Intervention Programs

Under ORC 3313.6028(B), the Department is responsible for establishing a list evidence-based reading intervention programs that are aligned with the science of reading and strategies for effective literacy instruction.

The Department’s list of approved reading intervention programs is provided below and includes programs that met the required criteria for prekindergarten through grade 12. The Department's review process is ongoing for vendors who have elected to appeal the Department's program review decision.

Full vendor and program information, including contact information and program details provided by the respective vendor, will be available in early June.

While all vendors on the approved list meet the standards for evidence-based reading intervention programs, districts and schools should carefully review materials to determine which materials best meet the needs of their students and educators.
