New, Free Activities That Promote Early Literacy

Funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs, and created by Angela Notari-Syverson, Ph.D. and her colleagues, fourteen new parent education handouts are now available at These activities are designed to be for use during car or bus rides, walks, or any other activities outside of the home, and they help parents bond with their children while teaching early literacy skills. Covering rhyming words, music, nursery rhymes, the I Spy game, and maps, these exercises are sure to create an enjoyable learning experience for young children, with or without disabilities. The creator of the handouts allows for their copy and distribution, as long as they are not sold. For any questions, contact Mary Maddox at
