Have you heard about ETP?

Last night community members met to learn about ETP. What’s that? It is the Early Teaching Project that is now being offered in Roseburg and Douglas County.

ETP1

The Early Teaching Program (ETP) teaches parents to read effectively with their children thereby enabling their children to exceed in life. There’s strong evidence shown in several studies pointed out in the film shown this evening called “Are We Crazy About Our Kids?”

There’s more if you missed this. There will be two trainings at UCAN’s Conference Room. Thank you to the panelists present at the meeting who explained their roles in assisting young families and children, helping them with life skills, and reading, and just getting through life. One of the main points was there’s just not enough resources to cover all needs, and poverty is an issue in Douglas County. panelists1
