Duration: 60 min

LENA, a non-profit dedicated to closing opportunity gaps by focusing on interactions, has partnered with Head Start programs across the country to accelerate early language and literacy development. Join us in conversation with Region 9 Head Start grantees who use LENA to learn more about why they chose to implement LENA and how this innovative technology and strengths-based coaching can support your program in meeting the needs of young children. LENA’s programs have shown increases in CLASS scores, as well as longitudinal results in improving school readiness. They are easy to implement, adaptable to fit the ever-changing realities of supporting children this fall, and integrate trauma-informed approaches.
