Impact of Early Literacy Parent Education in Immigrant Communities on the U.S.-Mexico Border

Elaine M. Hampton, Ph.D.


This study describes the impact of an early childhood literacy development program in a low-income, immigrant community. The non-profit sponsored program serves families and child-care providers in the southwestern United States who live along the U.S.-Mexico border. A series of research activities was implemented over several years to examine the program’s impact on care-givers’ interactions with pre-school children in this literacy-development context. The data show a consistent positive impact in the home setting as adult participants implement early literacy learning in daily childcare.
