Corner of Kensington Way and Dave Brubeck Way, Stockton, CA
Guest speaker Kevin Slattery will share innovative techniques used by Providence Talks to tailor literacy strategies to individual children with remarkable success.
By the time they are 4 years old, many children from low socio-economic households have heard 30 million fewer words than children from middle and upper socio-economic households, creating enormous literacy inequities.
Hear how one city tackled the challenge with amazing results in Providence Talks, a voluntary early intervention program in Providence, Rhode Island.
Learn how to implement some of those strategies in your classroom or home environment.
