Because parent mentors are parents of children with disabilities themselves, they understand and share a parent’s desire to find the resources and support needed for their children. Parent Mentors have a wealth of information and experience to share with families around the state.
These are a few disability related trusted resources which parent mentors frequently rely on.
*** New PreK Texting Program Helps Get Kids Ready for Kindergarten
Thanks to a collaboration between the Georgia Department of Education and Stanford University, Georgia parents of pre-kindergarteners and kindergarteners have access to a FREE texting program to help prepare 3-, 4- and 5-year-olds for kindergarten.
Ready4K GA provides tips, facts, resources, and regular reminders about how parents can excel in their role as their child’s first and most important teacher by maximizing existing family routines in fun and easy ways. Research shows that these types of texts increase parent involvement at home and school while leading to significant child learning gains.
Once a family enrolls, they receive three short text messages each week: one highlighting an important literacy skill like rhyming or letter recognition, a second with an easy activity that parents can do with their children to develop that skill, and a third with suggestions about how to continue nurturing growth in that area.
Help us spread the word about this great free resource by sharing it with your network and community.
These resources are available in English and Spanish.
