Abstract

Introduction: Early exposure to reading aloud may prevent reading problems. Objectives: This study seeks to determine whether institution of programs as Nati per Leggere (NpL) is associated with increased reading aloud. Materials and Methods: Before-after intervention study: a survey submitted by family paediatricians during well being visits in children from 6 months to 6 years of age. Results: Refer to 9 Italian sites before the NpL intervention: • the attitude towards reading aloud is about 20% with important and statistically significant differences between southern (10%), central (20%) and northern (30%) Italy; • the child's age influences parents' attitude towards reading aloud; • a doctor's anticipatory guidance or the use of specific materials regarding NpL is correlated with increased reading aloud. Conclusions: The implementation of NpL programs seems to be associated with increased parental support for reading aloud. These results need confirm from the post-intervention data at the moment in progress.
