About Us

Welcome to the Yale Child Study Center–Scholastic Collaborative for Child & Family Resilience.

Our Collaborative arose from a shared commitment to exploring how literacy can be used to foster resilience among children and families. We believe in a multi-generational approach to literacy that is grounded in storytelling, social connections, and place-based learning to strengthen communities. At the Collaborative, we are focused on conducting research and developing resources that embrace these methods, while increasing positive academic and health outcomes for children and families nationwide.

We are deeply engaged in this work every day, and look forward to furthering research on how literacy and health are connected through on-the-ground implementation of programs as well as workshops and summits that bring researchers, educators, healthcare practitioners, and families together to support vulnerable communities nationwide.
