Building Family Literacy and Essential Skills: Enhancing Social Inclusion - Evaluation of a Family Literacy Program: Upgrading for Parents with Preschoolers (UPP) (2011)

This document offers an evaluation of the effects of Upgrading for Parents with Preschoolers (UPP), a 20-week intervention program, on both the parenting ability and literacy skills of the participants.

The findings show that at the end of the study, parents in the intervention program showed greater progress in their basic literacy skills than the Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) group or the control group, which received no instruction.

Also, parents participating in UPP showed superior parenting skills at the end of 20 weeks, in comparison with the parents participating in either the LBS or in the non-intervention control group.

The author explains the methodology used for the study and discusses some of the limitations on its findings.
