Why Ready4K Personalized Learning?

Every child follows their own unique path as they grow and learn. Providing every family with the right insights to help support their child on this journey is the purpose behind the Ready4K Personalized Learning program.

Ready4K Personalized Learning takes the next step in achieving best-fit tips and activity ideas by using screener results to individualize the program to the child.

This program draws on randomized controlled trial research showing that sending text messages to families based on their child’s development level can increase child learning by more than 2-3 months (Doss, Fahle, Loeb & York, 2018).

 

Ready4K Personalized Learning is available in English, Spanish, and Arabic.

 

The Personalized Learning Curriculum

Ready4K Personalized Learning provides families with a whole child curriculum informed by Ages & Stages Questionnaires®, Third Edition (ASQ®-3) screener results. The screener results are used to personalize the program to the child.

Each family receives text messages that support healthy growth and development within all areas screened with ASQ-3: Communication, Gross Motor, Fine Motor, Personal-Social, and Problem Solving.

 

When screener results indicate that, in a given area, the child is… Families receive…
Above the Cutoff Fun hands-on activities to strengthen these abilities and build skills to come in this area
Close to the Cutoff Fun everyday activities that support targeted developmental milestones within this area
Below the Cutoff

Activities that support parenting practices within this area. These messages focus on parental modeling and self-care, and do not require any response from the child.

Families also receive regular reminders about how to connect with a live person for support and further assessment.
