Supporting young children and families during COVID: Launching new programs and adapting to virtual family engagement
Families with young children are facing exceptional challenges during the pandemic and need support now more than ever. At the same time, organizations are facing uncertainty in budgets and staffing, while also rapidly innovating and pivoting to virtual support. During this discussion, we’ll hear from an organization that has recently launched a new LENA Start program and another that has shifted their existing program from in-person to virtual. We’ll discuss why they took on a new program now, what was most challenging, and strategies for effective family engagement in a virtual context.
