This project was designed to evaluate and improve the decoding and sight word recognition of a first grade student through the use of code-based interventions. The student who participated in this project was a first grade student in a Charter School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Following a pre-project assessment, the researcher engaged in multi-week interactive sessions with the student using a variety of research-based intervention strategies. The student was assessed after each session and at the conclusion of the project. With specifically tailored reading interventions, the student’s decoding ability improved. While the negative Matthew Effect was not reversed, it was diminished, and moved the student closer to grade level.
