The purpose of this study was to review the literature written about different programs individualizing the reading program so as to enable the writer to judge their worth in a given situation. The area of reading was chosen for this study because more time is spent teaching and practicing reading skills than is spent on any other subject. Further, the writer will attempt to present the steps used in instituting a program in a school. Implementing or revising any program takes careful analysis by an entire staff, but certain steps and procedures should be followed after the staff has agreed on the plan of action.
