Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. understand the current state of the research on parent-delivered reading interventions.
  2. apply their understanding of the current research to considering ways in which they could effectively implement reading interventions in schools.
  3. consider the potential challenges in implementing parent-delivered reading interventions and how these may be addressed.


Family–school collaboration, specifically the at-home implementation of academic interventions, may improve students’ academic achievement. We will present the results of a review of the literature followed by a single-case design study. Attendees will understand the overall effectiveness of at-home academic interventions and implications for research and practice.
