Because the DataTableReader always returns the type stored within the underlying DataColumn, the value returned by calling the GetProviderSpecificValue method always returns data of the same type as the data stored within the DataTable. When you work with the DataTableReader class, calling the GetProviderSpecificValue method returns the same value and type as calling the GetValue method.
