Activities completed at home extend student opportunities for reading.

All of the early intervention programs stress the importance of cooperation between home and school. Parents are informed about the nature of the program, regularly updated on their child's progress, and told about ways in which they can support the child and contribute to her or his progress. Students take home materials every, or almost every, day. They may borrow books they have read; they may take home teacher-constructed summaries or variations of books they have read, sentences or stories they have written, etc. Teachers are careful to send home only materials that students can successfully respond to at home without teacher support. Again, the emphasis is on consistent success and the avoidance of failure.
