Introduction to LENA for Head Start Association Staff
Join LENA, a national nonprofit, to learn about how we partner with Head Start programs to promote language and literacy skill development in both center- and home-based programs. LENA uses an innovative, research-based approach that provides objective data on children’s talk environments to help foster a positive climate and improve child outcomes without increasing provider stress. This objective data is particularly critical amidst increasing concern that social distancing and mask requirements are curtailing teacher-child interactions.
