PARENT TRAINING AND READING GAINS OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN.
DELLA-PIANA, GABRIEL; AND OTHERS
A SMALL SAMPLE PILOT PROJECT WHICH DEMONSTRATED A TREATMENT EFFECTIVENESS AND SUGGESTED FUTURE LINES FOR RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT OF PARENT TRAINING PROGRAMS IS DESCRIBED. THE MAJOR HYPOTHESIS TESTED WAS THAT PUPILS WHOSE PARENTS WERE INVOLVED IN A TRAINING PROGRAM WOULD SHOW GREATER REGRESSED GAINS IN READING SKILLS THAN PUPILS WITH PARENTS NOT IN TRAINING. IN LATE SPRING, AN INVITATIONAL LETTER WAS SENT TO PARENTS OF CHILDREN WHO WOULD BE IN THE THIRD TO SIXTH GRADES IN TWO ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS AND WHOSE READING ABILITY WAS 1 OR MORE YEARS BELOW GRADE LEVEL. THERE WERE 13 EXPERIMENTALS AND 16 CONTROLS IN THE FINAL GROUP. THE CALIFORNIA READING TEST AND THE GILMORE ORAL READING TEST WERE ADMINISTERED TO THE PUPILS AS THE PRE- AND POST-TESTS. THE EXPERIMENTAL PARENT GROUP WAS TAKEN THROUGH THE PARENT-TRAINING PROGRAM. AFTER THE POST-TESTING OF ALL PUPILS IN READING, THE CONTROL GROUP PARENTS PARTICIPATED IN THE TRAINING PROGRAM. IN READING COMPREHENSION, THE CONTROL GROUP GAINS WERE GREATER THAN EXPERIMENTAL GROUP GAINS. THE PARENT TRAINING PROGRAM ACCOUNTED FOR 16 PERCENT OF VARIANCE IN ORAL READING ACCURACY AND FOR 25 PERCENT OF THE VARIANCE IN ORAL READING COMPREHENSION. TABLES AND SCATTER PLOTS ARE INCLUDED. THE TRAINING PROGRAM IS DESCRIBED IN THE FINAL REPORT. (BK)
