Inspired by research on early language development by Dr. Anne Fernald from Stanford University, the Habla Conmigo Academy is an innovative program for parents that was created to put scientific discoveries into action.
Habla Conmigo Academy is a free parenting program for Latino families with children from 15 to 22 months of age, as well as for older children 30-36 months of age.
During 10 or 12 weeks, this program helps families understand their own strengths and values as parents, while at the same time preparing them with the tools and skills which benefit their child and help them to be successful in school and later in life.
Through conversations that are culturally relevant to the Latino community, guided by a facilitator, families get together 2 times per week to attend open-ended workshops with other parents and then play sessions with their child. These play sessions are designed to be able to allow parents to apply the new tools that they learned during the program during fun activities with their child.
