Developing Early Literacy in Informal Settings: Engaging Disadvantaged Aboriginal and CALD Families Outside Formal Settings

NSW Department of Education, The University of Sydney

2010-2011 | LP0668926

The development of literacy in pre‑school age children is a national priority. This research will address a major gap in the provision of support for literacy development in children and families who do not access formal pre‑school programs. It will directly address the disadvantage experienced by children and families in informal settings.

The outcomes of this research will benefit work in this area at both a theoretical and a practical level. It will provide a strengthened research base around reaching and involving children and families and will inform those literacy methodologies that seek to address linguistic and cultural difference.
