March 3, 2008 — Read Captions Across America™ for Read Across America Day

Read Captions Across America™ is a national reading event with an emphasis on the importance of captioned media as a reading tool for children whether they are deaf, hard of hearing, or hearing. Events and activities will take place nationwide on Read Across America Day (March 3, 2008) and throughout the week before and after this special day.

This is the third year Described and Captioned Media Program (DCMP) is partnering with the National Education Association (NEA) to celebrate Read Across America, observed in conjunction with the birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss.
