Promoting Latinx Parent Home-Based Involvement: Strengthening Home–School Collaboration

This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 7
  • Skill Level: Intermediate
  • Session 5: Promoting Academic Success

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. describe Latinxs’ motivations for parent involvement in the home.
  2. develop parent involvement strategies for Latinxs.
  3. use Latinx parent involvement strategies in daily practice.


Despite the importance of parent involvement in children’s early academic achievement, there is a paucity of research exploring motivations for parent involvement in the early schooling years among linguistically and ethnically diverse populations such as Latinx students. Grounded in Hoover-Dempsey and Sandler’s theoretical model, this study examines Latinx parents’ motivations for home-based involvement in shared-book reading with their preschool children. Implications for school psychologists and early education teachers will be discussed.
