Barriers and solutions to participation in family based education interventions

In the current paper, we review the literature on this topic, before describing a case study that demonstrates four potential solutions to four barriers to participation in a shared reading intervention for families from lower SES backgrounds. We discuss the implications of our findings for familybased interventions more generally, and the difficulty of balancing strategies to encourage participation with adhering to the methodological integrity of a research study.
