Young People’s Reading: The importance of the home environment and family support

This paper presents findings from our 2009 survey of young people’s reading and writing. It explores the types of resources young people have at home that support literacy, how this differs according to demographic background, and how they relate to reading enjoyment, attitudes and behaviour as well as reading attainment.

It also explores who encourages them to read, who in the family is seen reading and how frequently young people talk about reading with their family. It outlines how these differ according to demographic background, and how each of these relate to reading enjoyment, attitudes and behaviour as well as reading attainment.
