Help your Child Learn to Communicate with our March ParentTip!

From the very first days of his life, your child is learning to communicate. Language and literacy are how your child learns to express his needs and understand others by talking, listening, and reading and writing. These are important for his getting ready to start school. Everything you do with your child, from infancy through preschool, has an effect on her language skills and her ability to learn to read.
