Parental, Community and Familial Support for Children's Literacy in Developing Countries
A Systemic Review
The objective of this systematic review was to examine the effectiveness of parental, familial, and community support for children's literacy development in developing countries. This review was intended to provide information about the contextual influences of parental, familial, and community support on children's literacy development skills through the use of interventions that target those influences.
This report explores the following questions:
- What models of reading and literacy learning programs have been implemented in homes and communities in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs)?
- What models of reading and literacy learning programs implemented in homes and communities in LMICs have empirical evidence regarding their level of effectiveness?
- How effective are these models in improving children's literacy outcomes?
