After seeing the successful impacts of LENA Start groups, our collaborative partners explored how we could continue to connect with families to strengthen home language environments and healthy development of children. Our Home visiting partners embedded LENA Home into existing home visiting programs. This language focus includes an orientation and 10 sessions of literacy add-ons that are delivered in their current home visiting programs. Families are introduced to simple talking strategies and coached on how they can add these into their daily routines. Each family receives quality materials and books to build a home library. They also receive reports on their home language environment at each session which helps them set goals for their family. If you are pregnant and are interested in screening for home visiting contact Brittany Watson at 518-2662.
