Description

This qualitative research study focused on parent perceptions of the services their children with literacy disorders receive. Data was gathered through semi-structured interviews that lasted approximately 30 minutes. Participants include parents of children who participate in Rec N' Read. Children who attend Rec N' Read are elementary-aged and have a wide disability range. Each child has been assessed and significant literacy deficits exist. Rec N' Read is a program that targets literacy skills, following a 30-minute intervention of physical movement. Interview questions consisted of the following categories: parent involvement, perspectives on improvement, outside assistance and perception, motivation, and improvements/suggestions. After obtaining interview data, recordings were transcribed, and parents' responses were examined for themes. The information obtained will allow us to provide a more detailed understanding of any underlying factors that impact children with disabilities and contribute to facilitating more competent services.
