9 PP It is not easy to identify people who could benefit from improving their literacy and numeracy just by appearances. Parents/carers and heath visitors may have learning styles that affect the way they communicate and learn. Giving them information in an accessible form will help them feel valued and willing to take up opportunities to improve their literacy, language and/or numeracy skills. Parents need the skills to be able to help them to look after themselves and their children. There are a variety of ways to identify whether parents/carers have gaps in their literacy, language and/or numeracy skills; one of these would be for health professionals to carry out a skills check during the everyday contacts that they have with parents/carers. End of programme summary 2.8a

10 PP Opportunities to identify include completing the Red Book, making the most of the Bookstart packs, applying for and using the Healthy Start vouchers. Skills checking can be followed by initial and diagnostic assessment, provided by a qualified Skills for Life specialist. Working in partnership with Skills for Life providers, health professionals and librarians to make the most of the opportunities available really helps parents to improve their skills – this can affect the health and wellbeing of the family.
