Sesame Workshop Resources for Military Families Fact Sheet

Sesame Workshop is a nonprofit educational organization that brings critical life lessons to children across the world. The Department of Defense and Sesame Workshop collaboration began in 2006, when both organizations agreed that military children of preschool age would benefit from a resource to help them cope with the experience of a deployed parent. The result of this collaboration was the much-needed support and practical education captured by "Talk, Listen, Connect," which features videos, storybooks and workbooks, specially created for this program, that guide families through tough transitions. Since it began, the collaboration has resulted in a variety of multimedia resources for military families, which are available at no cost through Military OneSource.
