Tutors for Tots
A program matching senior adults with preschool children who are developmentally delayed in language acquisition and vocabulary development. The seniors participated in a workshop learning language acquisition methods and strategies. Since then, twice each week, senior adults tutor at a day care center. After each 30-minute tutoring session, the seniors continue their training with the Site Coordinator, sharing ideas, discussing techniques, and learning new methods. The feedback from the day care Director shows that the tutoring sessions are helping the youngsters make gains on standardized tests.
