      Do you have a 18 to 32 month old?

      Do you want your child to have a great start to school?

      Do you live within the zone of an Alief school?

      If you answered YES to all the questions above, you and your child are invited to participate in Alief ISD's LENA Start Program during the 2020-2021 school year.




      If your baby is 18 to 32 months old:

      • You can make your baby’s brain stronger.

      • You can make your baby’s brain ready for success in school.

      • You can make a difference in your baby’s life through talk and interaction!

       FREE weekly progress reports
