If your child isn't already back in school, it's right around the corner. This year, your child will have new goals and objectives, explore new content, and learn new skills. There are many ways that family members of young children can support literacy at home and in the community outside of school hours. We will discuss assessments, Literacy in the IEP, and communication with your child's school. We welcome you to join us as we explore tips, strategies, and everyday opportuities for you to engage with your child, and your school, around literacy.
