Research and Studies
Since We Love Reading’s founding, we have consistently partnered with top institutions to conduct rigorous research on our read-aloud program. We strive to assess its effectiveness and to continuously improve our approach to better serve our beneficiaries
We Love Reading founder Dr. Rana Dajani collaborated with researchers from Yale University to develop a brief and reliable survey tool to measure resilience in children and adolescents who have been displaced by the brutal conflict in Syria. The tool was designed to be culturally relevant, and is available in both English and Arabic. They found that higher levels of resilience were asscoated with lower levels of stress and fewer mental health problems. They also found some differences within the populations surveyed regarding the significance of structures such as religion, education, and family, as well as identified sources of resilience.
