TALKline, parenting resource, returns to Project Enlightenment

Posted September 2, 2013

Staff cuts forced Project Enlightenment to end its popular TALKline a while ago, but I'm so happy to report that it's back!

When it was running, the service was used by many a parent, caregiver and educator. Anyone can call in during specific hours with a question or concern about a child from birth through kindergarten. An expert will work to answer the questions. It's been a lifesaver for many a worried parent.

TALKline will resume on Tuesday. Calls will be answered from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., Tuesdays, and 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., Wednesdays and Thursdays. The phone number is 919-856-7808.

We can all thank the Project Enlightenment Foundation for bringing back this great resource. Project Enlightenment is Wake County schools' early childhood education and intervention program.

    Just want to say, Project Enlightenment is a great service. It helped my son get mainstreamed after an autism diagnosis.

    My son was diagnosed with autism at 3yo. We identified a cause (lactose intolerance) and were able to cut that out of his diet, but he still had developmental delays that we didn't have the expertise to address. He went through a couple of years of Project Enlightenment programs, and is mainstreamed in kindergarten this year.
