COSTA, Karina da et al. Perception of family support and performance in reading and writing by children of the basic education. Rev. psicopedag. [online]. 2016, vol.33, n.101, pp. 154-163. ISSN 0103-8486.

OBJECTIVE: This study aims to evaluate the relationship between family support and reading and writing performance of children from 8 to 10 years. METHODS: The primary sample consisted of 102 children aged 8 to 10 years with a mean age of 9 years (SD = 0.77). All participants are students of a school located in a municipality in the state of Maranhão. Students were assessed by the Inventory of Family Support Perception and Writing Performance Test, Reading and Mathematics for Elementary Education. RESULTS: Among the results of the regression analysis with dependent variable performance in Portuguese and, the independent, family support factors, two variables significantly explained performance in Portuguese, family autonomy and family adaptation. CONCLUSION: These results are consistent with the literature. Studies could perform a meta-analysis of articles on family and academic performance in order to characterize what specific contributions of every aspect related to performance.
