Sunny Side of the Street: An Early Intervention Parent Mentor Program
School staff and social service providers now have an exceptional curriculum for parents who have cognitive limitations or low literacy. Professionals can teach and promote family activities that support social, emotional and literacy development in children Pre K-1.
Using a rich collection of music, games, videos, pictures and positive modeling, it’s an ideal teaching tool for working with families who have low literacy.
