Simply Smart Kids
Simply Smart Kids, LLC, founded by four Michigan educators in 2006, has created Simply Smart START! P.O.W.E.R. Tools™, a cutting-edge video system that teaches parents and caregivers five proven strategies for advancing early child development in the areas of language and literacy.
The videos within the Simply Smart START! P.O.W.E.R. Tools™ system, include scenes with real moms and dads using the P.O.W.E.R. Tools while engaging with their own children. With this modeling, viewers actually see the strategies in action and learn how to increase the quantity and quality of talk with their children.
Simply Smart START! P.O.W.E.R. Tools™ is based on the groundbreaking research of Hart and Risley (Meaningful Differences in the Everyday Experience of Young American Children, 1995).
The creators of Simply Smart START! P.O.W.E.R. Tools™ are thrilled to partner with parents, teachers and caregivers enhancing the minds of young and precious children.
