Program Helping Kids Communicate

In the area of 48th Avenue and Q Street, you will find the Early Childhood Education Program called Kids Can.

We checked-in on a program that is helping children with something many can't do well these days and that is utilize handwriting skills.

In today's high-tech world, technology in the form of computer tablets can be used to learn about handwriting and letters. It's a real-world lesson that you learn more effectively by doing.

Robert Patterson, with Kids Can, says, "Sharing is obviously a big part of it. Even kind of the tactile functions of a child holding the pad as opposed to a pen or pencil as well since, in 2013, this is the way parents and children communicate."

The program is part of the broader purpose of Kids Can, to help the children get a good start on their education.
