>Reading disorders are associated with word recognition problems, characterized basically by the difficulty in phonologic processing. This paper presents some of the most relevant research results about intervention programs, leading to a better understanding of early and remedial interventions. Conclusions indicate the importance of intensive intervention to remedy reading accuracy while early intervention proves more efficient in improving levels of reading fluency. The most marked difference in results in early and remedial intervention programs is the gap between fluency and precision in reading, which is not as big in early intervention program results as found in remedial programs.
