International collaborations allow for an important exchange and flow of ideas. Over the past two years, our team of researchers, clinicians, and graduate students has collaborated with the Solyluna School. The Solyluna School is in Merida, Mexico, and serves children with severe language and cognitive impairments. The context of the Solyluna School is central to our efforts in this area, as the Solyluna School has sought out ways to increase the family literacy activities for the students enrolled in the school. Furthermore, family literacy activities within the Yucatan context, through the small amount of research available, have been shown to be minimal. Using our experiences as a backdrop, we will discuss suggestions for practice.
