Stop by the Refugee Family Literacy Program in Clarkston, Ga., any day, and you’ll hear a lot of talking. This isn’t surprising, of course, since much of the focus there is on teaching English literacy. But at the end of each day, there is a special, delightful kind of talking that fills the classrooms—mothers talking to their children.

Take a look at this video and then check out how the Refugee Family Literacy Program is applying the Talk With Me Baby strategy with new moms.
