Programme Curriculum In order to achieve these goals, the SPICE-FLP has developed a broad and scientifically-based literacy curriculum which encompasses basic literacy and numeracy reading, comprehension and writing , adult education, early childhood education, parent education, and intergenerational literacy activities. Besides literacy skills, the comprehensive and integrated curriculum is also intended to foster the development of a broad range of social skills among learners including: critical thinking interpersonal effective communication, group relations, problem solving conflict resolution responsibility for learning.
Mobilisation and Enrolment of Learners Because the SPICE-FLP employs a comprehensive case management model for family literacy — a model which is designed to provide families with individualised literacy training at their homes — programme participants are recruited throughout the year.
From Literacy to Life Skills
Lessons Learned The link between the literacy activities and brain development became a focus of the in-home visits. The early childhood instructor reported that some new mothers were not talking to their infant because they did not think it was necessary or important. The intensity of instruction has resulted in an increase in student educational goal attainment. In addition, research indicates that the more intensive the student hours, the greater the likelihood they will understand, retain and use the concepts and techniques learned.
Working with the birth to three populations supports a proactive approach to literacy issues, rather than waiting for issues and challenges to arise and reacting to the illiteracy challenge with special education services or having the learner drop out of school.
Ultimately, this process will help break the cycle of reacting to illiteracy issues, and helping before the challenges become an issue. Communication among all interested parties in developing family literacy programming from the national level legislation to the individual participants in the family literacy programme is key to continued success.
Without pertinent data, knowledge and understanding of why supporting the entire family through education to self-sufficiency is the goal of all family literacy programming, communication breaks down and can lead to misinformed decisions regarding resources, and can have dire consequences.

Barriers to literacy are varied. All family literacy programmes must have a varied, multiple intelligence curriculum. Learners do not all learn the same way, and instructors must be versed at multi-faceted teaching methodologies. SPICE staff will increase the use of technology with participants. This teaching technique increases intensity of instruction, supports the twenty-first century workforce with required technology skills, and connects our isolated learners to the world.
Parents that have had negative experiences in school do not attend school functions very often with their children. SPICE staff actively teach parents to advocate for themselves and their children in school events and activities.
