Last year, the US Dept of Education awarded Community Services for Children a grant use researched-based curriculum to improve the language skills of children from families who speak little to no English. The results to date are very encouraging.
Lehigh University’s College of Education is a partner in the project, working to evaluate outcomes of the program. They have recently launched a website providing background for parents and professionals alike. For information: //www.lehigh.edu/collegeofeducation/learn/index.html
