Note that ReadAskChat may be purchased with Title 1 funds, which are allocated for raising achievement for low-income and other disadvantaged children. ReadAskChat aligns with the Title 1 objectives to support programs that reach families in their homes and that train staff in family engagement strategies.
Schools that are not eligible for Title 1 also recognize the benefits of ReadAskChat to engage families in their children’s learning in an enjoyable, and intellectually rewarding way.
ReadAskChat is designed to support the missions of community organizations that focus on early learning, literacy, and/or parent engagement. Organizations purchase bulk subscriptions that include training materials so they can offer ReadAskChat along with guidance to the families they serve. ReadAskChat can be purchased using Title 1 funding at the discretion of school and district leaders.
ReadAskChat has been embraced by service agencies with home visiting and parenting programs and preschools with a wide range of educational philosophies.
