Moving Our Expertise From the Clinic Into the Community

Nemours BrightStart! programs take place in the community: in child care centers, schools, and other locations where children and families gather. Every part of our program is designed to raise awareness about the warning signs of dyslexia and reading failure, and offer guidance to help prevent at-risk young learners from falling behind their peers.

Mobile Classrooms

Nemours BrightStart! uses three innovative, state-of-the-art mobile classrooms to increase our ability to bring awareness and services for early literacy success into the community. The mobile classrooms offer a fun and safe space for Nemours BrightStart! educators to provide instructional services to identified preschoolers, as well as offer screenings for 3- to 5-year-olds within the community.

The Nemours BrightStart! mobile classrooms also help to facilitate and elevate awareness of dyslexia and other barriers to reading success. Families, civic and community leaders, child advocates, policymakers and thousands of visitors have toured our mobile classrooms and received information about Nemours BrightStart!, reading readiness and dyslexia.
