Early Literacy Needs of Children with Disabilities

How does your library serve the early literacy needs of children with disabilities?  The Developmental Disabilities Literacy Promotion Guide from Reach out and Read can help you better meet the needs of families in your community.

The Literacy Promotion Guide is designed to assist parents with:

  • Helping with transitions
  • Introducing new situations
  • Creating literacy-rich environments
  • Encouraging joint attention, pointing, rhyming, singing
  • Sharing emotions to promote literacy development of children with disabilities
