National Head Start Association

After hearing about our literacy and neurodiversity initiatives, Malkia Payton-Jackson, NHSA Director of Alumni Engagement, invited the Yarde family as guests at the 2021 National Head Start Association’s Family Engagement Conference to discuss how they support literacy development. They discussed the significance of Head Start in expanding the family’s love of reading (both Tanya and Keith are alumnae of the program). They also discussed about how Star Wars brings their family together through a love of reading.
