Hanen’s newest program, ABC and Beyond, is designed to help educators of preschool children (ages 3-5) promote the emergent literacy skills that all children need to develop in order to learn to read and write successfully.
By taking the latest research in early literacy development and “translating” it into practical, immediately usable strategies, ABC and Beyond makes it easy for educators to build literacy naturally into every part of the day.
