About the Webinar
Part 2 of the Act Early Forum Webinar, Creative Ways to Reach Hard to Reach Populations, will focus on addressing literacy in low-in income families with "Learn the Signs. Act Early." materials. Zolinda Stoneman, PhD, and her research team will discuss their recently completed Research Topic of Interest (RTOI), Narrowing Gaps in Early Identification among Underserved Population Groups. This RTOI focused on urban parents that have low literacy skills, live in poverty and have young children. Study findings and general recommendations will be discussed. Jessica Drennan, MSW, will also discuss the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) partnership with Reckitt Benckiser (makers of Lysol®) and Reach Out and Read (ROR), an organization that promotes early literacy among low-income families. Together, they disseminated the children's book, Amazing Me: It's Busy Being 3! to parents of 3-year-olds through pediatric clinics across the United States. Amazing Me was developed by CDC and partners to increase awareness of developmental milestones among parents and engage them in the monitoring of their child's development. We hope you will be able to join us!
