Study to evaluate success of parental involvement in early childhood education
Date:2/27/2009

r the excellent work they do in improving children's learning."

The PALS program, which has been research-proven in a study funded by the National Institutes of Health, teaches parents skills for interacting with their children. Coaches use PALS to work with parents on how to communicate with their child effectively to help them enhance their performance in school. "An example would be a parent holding up a jar of juice and saying, 'Do you want this?' We teach the parent to help expand their child's vocabulary by not using words like this, that and those," Landry said. "A PALS coach would recommend saying, 'Would you like a glass of grape juice?' "

The TEEM program involves community-based partnerships where teachers take part in professional development courses and receive in-classroom mentoring. This enables the teachers to grow and make changes to their instructional techniques, even classroom design, to provide a better learning environment.

The federal grant will help fund the opening of 30 new TEEM and TEEM/PALS classrooms in the Houston area for the study. "We want scientific data that will show us whether the combination program is helping kids be better prepared for kindergarten," said Landry. "CLI will continue to use science to test teaching methods. The goal is to give children, no matter their economic status, the very best education."
