Learning Through Relationships: A Social Communication and Pre-Literacy Curricular Approach in Early Head Start
University of Colorado at Denver and Health Sciences Center will develop the Learning Through Relationships curriculum to promote language and pre-literacy skills, as well as broad areas of social-emotional functioning that are age-appropriate for infants and toddlers and that predict readiness for group-based learning and motivated engagement with print materials. 101 children will participate in the study, and half of the children will be exposed to the curriculum in year two, and all of the children will be exposed in year 3. Results of the study will include improvements in Child Development Professional (CDP) and child interactions, as well as improvements in family behavior and child interactions, and improvement in the physical environment of classrooms and homes.
