Read Aloud launches initiative to close literacy and talk gap

Article Summary:

Read Aloud Delaware, a statewide organization dedicated to early childhood literacy for over 35 years, announced a partnership with LENA designed to help parents and caregivers measure, improve and make the most of their verbal connections with young children.

“As the pandemic prevents Read Aloud Delaware volunteers from in-person readings in child care centers, LENA Start is a great way for us to continue to have an impact throughout the state,” said James Spadola, executive director of Read Aloud Delaware.
