Get Delaware Reading, the statewide literacy coalition led by United Way of Delaware, ensures children are ready for school, addresses chronic absence with targeted support, engages families and cultivates out-of-school learning opportunities. One of their proven strategies for building early literacy skills is Nemours Children’s Reading BrightStart program. Reading Brightstart promotes reading success in children from birth to age 8 using innovative tools, research-based curriculum and community partnerships. The tools include a free preschool reading screener for children ages 3 to 5 and family engagement activities that can be done at home. Please join us as we explore in detail how Nemours Children’s Reading BrightStart program works, why Get Delaware Reading has integrated it into strategies for early school success, and the impact for young learners. We will also share free resources for providers and the steps community coalitions and providers can take to implement the program. Attendees will learn the following: · An overview of Get Delaware Reading. · Why the leaders of the coalition are using Nemours Children’s Reading BrightStart. · The link between early literacy skills and healthy development for children. · The results of this program as shared by practitioners. · Resources that providers and families can use immediately.
