Webinar Description

In this presentation, participants will be introduced to the Abriendo Puertas/Opening Doors (AP/OD) program. They will also learn from an implementing partner and their experience implementing AP/OD to their community. AP/OD is the nation's first evidence-based parent leadership program designed by and for Latino parents with children ages 0-5 and adopted by diverse communities across the country. The bilingual 10-session curriculum promotes school readiness, family well-being, and advocacy by addressing best practices in brain development, key aspects of early childhood development, early literacy, early math, positive use of technology, transition to school, civic engagement, parent leadership, goal-setting, and planning for family success.
