Reading Research Quarterly, v37 n4 p408-26 Oct-Dec 2002
Examines the nature of the relations between home literacy environment (HLE) and oral language, letter knowledge, phonological sensitivity, and word decoding during a one-year interval in preschool children. Finds that each of the HLE conceptualizations was consistently related to the outcomes studies, but the magnitude of the relations varied considerably. Suggests future examinations of the HLE need to account for how the home environment is conceptualized. (SG)
