Program Overview

LENA Start is a parent group model, which is turnkey and leverages: the LENA system to capture words and back and forth between the child and caregiver, feedback in the form of easy to read and actionable reports and content delivered weekly to a group of parents. The curriculum adapts hard science into accessible and easy to implement concepts.

Student and Volunteer Success Stories

We have hundreds of success stories from a mom in Alabama who recently shared that LENA Start gave her hope and helped her know she was a good mother to a young teen mother who first participated in our program and now is trained as a facilitator in our program.

Each family has their own success story and their own moments both in class as well as at home.
