WIC as a Platform for Promoting Early Literacy and Health: Partnerships for Sustaining Impact
First 5 Los Angeles
Studies have shown a connection between low literacy and poor health, and when a child struggles to read in school it can adversely affect their behavioral and physical health. However, nearly all children can become successful readers, especially when exposed early to activities and opportunities that support the development of literacy skills. The evidence-based Little by Little Program has helped foster early literacy skills and significantly improved school readiness for underserved children, utilizing partnership and sustainability strategies designed to sustain the program and child level outcomes.
