During the past decade, the issue of reading difficulties has received increasing attention in Hong Kong. A recent Education Bureau mandate calls for the development of effective instructional methods based on the 3-tier model to address the diverse learning needs of our students. Following a thorough review of the relevant research literature, we attempted to utilise a peer support learning system both as a Tier 1 preventive reading programme for beginning readers and as a Tier 2 supplementary remediation programme for struggling adolescent learners. Our investigative efforts indicate that the proposed peer support reading scheme shows promise as a preventive procedure for reducing reading failure in beginning readers. However, turning this scheme into a feasible and effective intervention for older students remains a challenge to be resolved by further consolidation and investigations.
近年閱讀困難的問題愈來愈受到關注。教育局倡議應用三層支援模式去處理個別差異。我們認為朋輩支援模式可作為第一層支援小學生優質閱讀的方法，亦可成為第二層支援中學生的小組補救教學策略。初步的研究結果顯示初小班級計劃的成效不錯，但初中的小組輔導計劃所面對的難度相對較高，尚需更多的研發方能成為有效可行的策略。[Copyright of Journal of Youth Studies is the property of The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups at http://yrc.hkfyg.org.hk/]
