This course is a discussion of a research study conducted in five Head Start programs located in low-income Southern urban neighborhoods. The participants attended one-session kindergarten readiness workshop to provide education regarding skills required for their child’s success when entering kindergarten. This course will provide an overview of early brain and motor skill development, followed by a review of the research on the importance of regular family routines, language exposure, frequent conversations, and regular reading to promote literacy and school readiness. Developmentally appropriate structured learning activities that serve to prepare parents for carrying out the recommended activities with their children in the home setting will be discussed. This course will also introduce recommendations for materials that occupational therapists can provide to parents to work with their children at home
