Early Literacy Program Helps Refugees Talk to Their Babies


By Jennifer Green, program director, Friends of Refugees

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.
