Description of The Effect of the Home Environment on the Reading Achievement of Children with Low Vision



Abstract: This study examined the reading achievement of 49 children with low vision and the contribution of the home environment to their reading. It found that the children with no books at home read less well than those who had books at home and that no other home variables were related to reading achievement. Despite the lack of evidence of a relationship between the home environment and reading achievement, observations indicated that practices in most homes supported the acquisition of literacy.
