LLI serves those students who need intensive support to achieve grade-level competency. These children are the lowest achieving children in the classroom who are not receiving another supplementary intervention. Each lesson in the LLI system also provides specific suggestions for supporting English language learners who are selected for the program.

Five systems are available for LLI. Each supports instruction at different levels on the F&P Text Level Gradient™, A–Z:

Leveled books are a key component in helping children become competent readers. Each LLI system includes a collection of brand new, carefully leveled books to provide enough support and a small amount of challenge so the reader can learn on the text and make small steps toward grade-level goals.

All systems have organized lessons around the following quantities of small books:

Assessment is the key to forming successful groups and determining the students for whom intervention would be most appropriate, and the Fountas & Pinnell Benchmark Assessment System helps assess students at the entry and exit points for the LLI system. Both systems are based on the F&P Text Level Gradient™, levels A–Z, which is correlated to grade level.
