Brownieland and The Atlanta Speech School have partnered together once again to produce video courses for the Rollins Center for Language and Literacy’s Cox Campus. Talk With Babies, Make a Difference is the latest video course created in partnership with Grady Health. Throughout the course, TWMB nurse navigators, Cynthia Engram and Alvaretta Riley, discuss the importance of early language and literacy skills in long-term outcomes. According to the Cox Campus website, this course is recommended for nurses and other healthcare staff and volunteers that provide patient care within the division of maternal and infant care of a birthing hospital. By the end of this course, learners will understand the critical role they play in ensuring every baby leaves the birthing hospital in the arms of families prepared to support their baby’s early language and literacy skills.

Across all programs, the goal of the Atlanta Speech School is to ensure that each child on campus and every child beyond the campus can acquire the language and literacy foundation necessary for self-determination. The Rollins Center for Language and Literacy partners with more than 100 public and private organizations to bring the Atlanta Speech School’s expertise in language and literacy to teachers across the nation. The Rollins Center for Language and Literacy’s Cox Campus is a professional development platform that offers free, research-based online courses for teachers with the intent of eradicating illiteracy by freely distributing science-backed language and literacy instruction for adults who work with children from birth to third grade.
