Latest issue of the IDRA Newsletter – This month’s focus: Early Learning

“Successful early childhood programs take what we know from brain research and provide meaningful reading and writing activities that appeal to children’s eagerness to learn about the world around them. All children benefit when these programs are accessible, well-funded and have well-prepared teachers.”  

– Celina Moreno, J.D., IDRA President &CEO
