The National Adult Literacy Agency (NALA) offers help and advice for parents/guardians who have difficulty reading, writing, spelling or doing mathematics. They have a Freephone number parents/guardians can call 1800 20 20 65 or a website www.learnwithnala.ie – parents/guardians can learn with their local ETB Adult Education Service or over the phone and online with NALA. All services are free.
NALA also has a website www.helpmykidlearn.ie that provides some suggestions for activities that parents/guardians can do with their children to develop their literacy and numeracy. It includes general information, fun activities and useful tips that can be integrated into any part of their day.
In addition, NALA has produced promotional posters and bookmarks with information about the website Help My Kid Learn, and how parents/guardians can support their children’s learning over the summer.
