Vision Statement

My research is concerned with understanding how the home literacy environment impacts upon children’s attainment in literacy, the development and evaluation of shared reading interventions.  In particular I am interested in how shared reading can be used as a mechanism for enhancing children’s early language learning, motivation, enjoyment of reading and enhance the bond between parent and child in a range of settings.
