This project developed a model and accompanying implementation strategies for involving parents and the community in attacking the problem of illiteracy. The handbook includes a core curriculum that delineates the model components and implementation strategies for purposes of replications in other communities. The project provides literacy instruction for parents of pre-school and primary school aged children, provides suggestions of consistent, on-going activities for parents to do with their children at home, and encourages the parents of young children to seek literacy instruction on an individual basis at least once a week.
