Dr Kerry Hempenstall: 'Literacy and Behaviour'

Postby Debbie_Hepplewhite » Fri Aug 25, 2017 9:41 am

It is really important that teachers and parents understand the connections between literacy and behaviour.

Literacy and Behaviour (Updated 2016)

Kerry Hempenstall

First published Oct 29/10/2012, updated 19/8/2016

The main intention of these blogs is to present findings from research on aspects of education. I don't claim that these findings tell the whole story, but only add whatever findings I might have explored in my readings. The relationship between literacy and behaviour problems is a vexed area, as it is difficult to discern which might be cause and which effect.

In a follow-up article, I address the research on literacy and mental health problems in general.

Some quotes from the research:


So what is the answer? Is behaviour the chicken or the egg? Which should be addressed - academic growth or behaviour? It appears at this stage that the evidence points to the relationship as reciprocal - one condition leads to an elevated risk of the other occurring.
