About Us

Reading Tips for Families was created to provide web based reading tips, ideas, and resources for Ohio’s families.

The Ohio Department of Education’s Office for Exceptional Children (ODE/OEC) and the Ohio Coalition for the Education of Children with Disabilities (the Coalition) collaborated in the implementation of the State Personnel Development Grant, funded by the United States Department of Education (2017-2022). The Coalition along with ODE/OEC will continue to build and develop an early language and literacy website for families of emerging readers. This website, Reading Tips for Families, hosts reading definitions, activities, and resources that engage and educate families, while meeting requirements for both disability accessibility and for speakers of other languages.
