resultsAn intergenerational program (IGP) is a type of human service that incorporates regular, scheduled interactions between persons of different ages for the benefit of all participants. It is well recognized that children's levels of emerging literacy when they first start school are significant predictors of eventual literacy and, subsequently, of overall academic performance. The learning environment at home has a big impact on a child's early competency development. The early home literacy environment (HLE), which is made up of all literacy materials and family interactions that support children's linguistic and literacy learning, is particularly closely tied to the children's language comprehension and production. A key element of the HLE is shared reading, which should start in a child's early years and become a regular part of family life. The effect of the HLE and a child's interest in literacy on later literacy skills has not received much research, though.
conclusionsIn this review study, we explore the role that the home plays in a child's literacy development and how various factors in the home affect a child's ability to read.
