A new early language and literacy website is available for families of emerging readers in Ohio! Through a collaboration between the Ohio Department of Education’s Office for Exceptional Children and the Ohio Coalition for the Education of Children with Disabilities, this website, Reading Tips for Families, will host reading definitions, activities, and resources to engage and educate families, while meeting requirements for disability accessibility and accessibility for non-English speakers.
The site's glossary of educational terms is especially helpful for parents and guardians, and is a good tool for librarians to know about!
The Ohio Coalition for the Education of Children with Disabilities believes that parents are the first teachers of their children. Its role is to support parents for the best outcomes for their children. The Coalition is honored to continue to partner with the Office for Exceptional Children to improve the lives of children so that they can reach their highest potential.
