The Early Language and Literacy Pyramid is a multi-tiered system of support (MTSS) that reflects the importance of a solid foundation. Each interactive tier includes practices and strategies that support your work. The targeted and intensive tiers provide you information needed to support some of our young learners.

EITA Mobile: Do you know a child who is just learning to talk? Open EITA Mobile (available in the Google Play or App Store) and check out Emergent Talkers (in the Family Tools section) for ways to help them along. Be sure to spread the word!

Social Communication: Social communication (pragmatics) is important in order to be able to build social relationships with other people. It is also important academically, as many curriculum based activities rely on working in groups and communication between peers.  Use this resource to learn more about your child and their social communication. 

Read Aloud Campaign: Summer is finally here and that means it is time to travel…by reading a book!
