Here’s the problem.

Most of us expect that we can send our children off to school and they will become successful readers. But learning to read, and to read well, is complex and challenging, and parents have to be involved long before school even starts and all through the years. WHY?

Because a strong early foundation and solid reading skills by grade 3 are linked to school and life success, and many children from all communities are not reaching their full potential as readers. And if children do have reading problems, they are often identified way too late.

Our solution?

We start at the beginning, and we give parents the information, tools and resources to learn about their children’s reading-related skills today, and track progress going forward– from birth to grade 3.

Parents are talking

James L.

Father of Georgie, age 18 months

“So much of the responsibility of childhood literacy falls on parents (which we didn’t know before), and it’s amazing to have the support of PUP to coach us along the way. We’d be lost without it.”

Jill N.

Parent of Noah

“If I’d found PUP Reading sooner, I could have used it as a conversation starter with Noah’s teachers.”

Kathleen W. & Betsy B.

Library media specialists

“We found Joan Kelley’s presentation to our staff inspirational. Her extensive experience in the field and in-depth research, along with her passion for the subject, made for a fascinating professional development session.”
