Himalayan Education Systems is in talks with top publishers in various countries to sell its first product

Himalayan Education Systems Pvt. Ltd. a pioneer company, whose aim is to revolutionize the current educational system, is on target to surpass the US dollar 100 billion revenue in the first year of operations, says CEO Prashant Kangutkar.

As per the business plan of Himalayan Education Systems it has already completed their first step. In less than one week their first product ‘Learning Alphabets’ has attracted interest from several top publishers and educational products distributors for its copyrights.

Himalayan Education Systems’ CEO Prashant Kangutkar says “The company is in negotiations to sell the copyrights with several market leading publishers and the top educational products distributors from various countries”.

‘Learning Alphabets’ in English Language is the first product, it has been developed using “Permanent Impact Method”. This method also developed by Himalayan Education Systems Pvt. Ltd. is based on scientific principles of psychology and the way our mind learns.

The “Permanent Impact Method” uses the four basic principles of learning and memorizing; Visualization, Association, Repetition and Effective Listening. Like all Himalayan Education Systems Pvt. Ltd.’s products ‘Learning Alphabets’ also has a global application.

Himalayan Education Systems Pvt. Ltd. is offering worldwide rights in 164 countries for this product at 100 billion US Dollars. Copyrights can also be purchased on a country-wise basis, where price negotiations can be considered.

Following their successful launch of ‘Learning Alphabets’ Himalayan Education Systems is also ready to launch its community welfare site: www.homesinmumbai.com.

‘Learning Rhymes’ is the second product Himalayan Education Systems is developing. It is generally seen that almost all the news in newspapers or news channels are reporting negative and destructive happenings. Even in the movies, films which are like Titanic and Jurassic Park, which picturise destructive scenes are the most popular. This may be because of the fact that the rhymes that we are learning generations on generations are destructive or creating negative emotions. E.g. Jack& Jill, London Bridge is falling down, Humpty Dumpty – destructive, Johnny, Johnny – learning to say lies. If we change the rhymes from negative emotions to positive emotions, there will be marked changes and transformations in our lives.

Himalayan Education Systems Pvt. Ltd. have developed optimistic rhymes, that take into account factors to create a positive impact in the minds of kids. This is done, without compromising on the ‘fun’ of learning. These rhymes will transform the attitude of mankind.

Last but not least, Himalayan Education Systems has prepared another product called“Success Formula” which has been developed by a Himalayan master. This product will help people in knowing how to achieve success or how to achieve goals. The product will also be marketed as all other Himalayan Education Systems products; the company will be selling the copyrights of the ‘Success Formula”. Contact Details: Himalayan Education Systems Pvt. Ltd., 119, Narayan Udyog Bhavan, Lalbaug Industrial Estate, Mumbai, 400012, India.

This flexibility, combined with our high-quality content, user-friendly design, renowned service and support, and affordable pricing will make ePath Knowledge™ a ‘go to’ solution for schools.”

I found the program offered a wide array of usable information and the students loved it. Because of our summer experience, we are going to use the program this school year.”

The ePath Knowledge™ offerings allow local and state level education agencies to provide powerful, state-specific tools accessible via any computer with an available connection to the Internet. Each ePath Knowledge™ tool addresses distinct educational needs while straightforward, visually based reports promote informed classroom instruction, so educators can readily identify the needs of each student or groups of students.

New Quick and Easy Test Preparation Now Available for Reading, Math, and Science

Peoples Education, a leading provider of supplemental educational material for the K-12 school market, today announced the addition of Reading, Grades 3-8 materials to the successful Measuring Up Express for the TAKS program. This new program, which first launched late last year, now offers a complete line of Reading, Math, and Science materials for Texas elementary and middle school tested grade levels. The Reading, Grades 3-8 program, includes student worktexts, Diagnostic Practice Tests, and Formative Assessments.

“Teachers told us that they are beginning to instructionally move to the new reading TEKS, but these TEKS are not yet tested. They still need materials to help students succeed on the pre-existing TEKS, which will be tested in 2010 and beyond,” commented Brian T. Beckwith, the company’s President and CEO. “Peoples Education has a history of responding to Texas educators’ needs promptly and with high-quality TEKS and TAKS-customized content. This new reading TAKS preparation and review program is no exception.”

The Measuring Up Express worktexts are a companion to the successful Measuring Up to the TEKS program. The new books address the TEKS that will be tested in 2010 with new content and reading passages. In areas where students need extra instructional support, Measuring Up lessons can be selected for in-depth standards coverage. For quick and easy test review 3-6 weeks prior to the TAKS, Measuring Up Express lessons are the perfect tool. The short lessons provide a brief review of the standards and relevant vocabulary, as well as test practice in the format of the current TAKS. The Measuring Up Express books also include a correlation to the new reading TEKS to help teachers and students as they transition to the new standards.

“Peoples Education has worked tirelessly to align the TEKS with the Measuring Up Express Reading worktexts,” remarked Elizabeth Firmin Birdwell, Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction at Duncanville ISD. “I think teachers will enjoy the product and they will find that it is cognitively aligned.”

The Measuring Up Express program includes free Formative Assessments as blackline masters so teachers can monitor student progress at the end of every chapter. Two free Diagnostic Practice Tests for each student allow teachers to diagnose student weaknesses and prescribe review lessons in the Measuring Up Express OR Measuring Up worktexts. This diagnose-prescribe-instruct model in the Measuring Up program has helped over 3 million Texas students improve test scores.

Escuela Del Sol Has Hired A Design Firm To Help Communicate Its Unique Brand Of Creative Education To Its Constituents

Albuquerque’s Escuela del Sol had a problem. Even after 40 years of continuous operation, there was growing confusion among parents as to what the Montessori system offered their children, how it differed f r o m other educational methods, and what results they should expect. The lack of communication was making it difficult to maintain, much less grow, enrollment, and had caused some dissatisfaction with currently enrolled families.

Now if Montessori schools know how to do anything, it is how to prepare kids to be creative thinkers and problem solvers. So the school’s board decided to practice what they teach. They put on their thinking caps, thought like a business and came up with a business solution-applying the very same traits they strive to nurture in their students.

This creative bit of problem solving led them to Ripe Inc., an Albuquerque-based design firm that specializes in building brands and identities for businesses. Normally. But the chance to work with such a forward thinking school was too good an opportunity to pass up. Ripe had to be equally creative in taking on a branding assignment f r o m a school. But they did their homework well.

Working closely with the school they developed an engaging, informative, visual and verbal communication system to clarify and deliver the brand message. The message was developed through intensive workshops in which consensus about the key attributes of the school’s brand were uncovered and documented. The analysis and evaluation became an internal brand reference guide book provided to all faculty and staff members-so there’s common understanding and consistent language when communicating the Escuela del Sol brand.

It also became the conceptual platform for developing the graphics libraries, website, messaging system, and electronic template that facilitates the school’s unique educational approach. And for developing its award-winning print collateral as well. The school’s new logo & stationery design has been s e l e c t e d to appear in PRINT’s 2009 Regional Design Annual. Planned advertising campaigns will focus on specific challenges-like boosting enrollment, and increasing parent engagement in the school’s educational process.

Escuela del Sol has made it their business to enhance their communications and their profile within the community. And they expect business to be good.

Peoples Education Debuts Measuring Up for Level A/Grade 1

Peoples Education, a leading provider of supplemental educational material for the K-12 school market, announced today the addition of first grade materials to the successful Measuring Up to the California Content Standards program. This exclusive approach to first grade standards preparation includes two levels in one book to give teachers flexibility to differentiate instruction for a wide range of student needs.. The Level A program includes instructional worktexts, Diagnostic Practice Tests, and Building Stamina booklets for English Language Arts and Mathematics.

Peoples Education

“We took our time to research what would be the best option for first grade teachers and their students,” commented Diane M. Miller, the company’s co-founder and Chief Creative Officer. “Having two sets of lessons on the same standards allows teachers to scaffold instruction for their first-grade students and for second-grade students who need specialized instruction to bridge the gap from first grade to second. We believe this program meets the needs of California educators in a more realistic way than traditional materials.”

The worktexts include Early Level lessons to be used at the beginning of first grade and Bridging Level lessons for the second half of first grade and second graders needing intervention. The program helps students transition to second grade and prepare early for the second grade assessment.

Lisa Anderson, a key advisor on the project and K-6 Reading Specialist from National City, said, “I am thrilled Peoples Education is coming out with a Grade One version of Measuring Up. I love how these workbooks present the essential California standards in an easy-to-learn, student-friendly format.”

A variety of assessment tools are available to help teachers diagnose student needs and monitor progress. Two short Diagnostic Practice Tests, one for Early Level and one for Bridging Level, can be used as a pretest and posttest for the program. These diagnostic assessments cover the key grade 1 standards with 30 questions each. Separate Building Stamina booklets are designed as formative assessments to be used at the end of each chapter in the Early and Bridging levels. All the assessment results can be used to prescribe specific Early and Bridging lessons in the Level A Measuring Up worktext for a truly customized approach for every classroom.

Borenson And Associates, Inc., With Headquarters In Allentown, PA Will Be Training Additional Instructors To Conduct The Making Algebra Child’s Play Workshops Nationwide

Since 1990 Borenson and Associates has conducted more than 2500 Making Algebra Child’s Play workshops showing teachers how the visual and kinesthetic approach of Hands-On Equations enables even 4th and 5th graders to succeed with algebraic equations not normally presented until the 8th or 9th grade.

borenson

The instructor candidates, coming from five different states, will be receiving their training at the Holiday Inn in downtown Allentown. The training will take place each day from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. It is expected that a student demonstration will take place each day from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.

All of the candidates have used Hands-On Equations in their classrooms for several years and are now coming to learn how to present the program to teachers.

Leading the training program will be Dr. Henry Borenson, who received a U.S. Patent for Hands-On Equations. With this group, the company will have about three dozen certified instructors. Borenson anticipates the need for 100 instructors within the next two years to meet the growing interest in his approaching to simplifying the abstract nature of algebra.

Recently, the company received their first order from Educational Opportunities, Inc. who have set a goal of introducing the program to 1,000 classroom in Africa, Asia and India.

“There is no reason for young students to be intimated by algebra,” says Borenson. “Through this visual and kinesthetic approach algebraic concepts become intuitive and are much easier to understand than division of fractions or long division– and much more fun!”

Borenson believes that when young students are successful with algebra their sense of self-esteem is enhanced. “There is no doubt about the effectiveness of this program,” he says. We have almost ten research studies posted at www.borenson.com to prove it.

The Essayist on the Controversy Surrounding the Model Academic Custom Writing Industry

A great deal of controversy surrounds the model academic custom-writing industry. Are the companies which provide academic custom writing services legitimate or not and do they support plagiarism? There is no single, clear-cut answer to these questions as the custom writing industry, as the case with any other, has the good and the bad, the honest and the dishonest. The question is how can potential customers separate the wheat from the chaff, distinguish between the good and the bad? This is an important concern among new customers, not to mention those who have previously had a less than `positive experience.’

There is no one answer to the question of whether custom writing companies are legitimate or not. The popular hype surrounding the illegitimacy of the majority aside, there are numerous model custom writing companies which enjoy extremely solid and well-earned reputations for providing customers with non-plagiarised, quality work which more than lives up to their stated guarantees. We, at Oxbridge Researchers Ltd., know that our network of model custom written academic essays, dissertations, thesis and research papers, is legitimate.

Whether you place your order through thessayist.com, ukessayist.com, dissertationist.com or any one of our websites, you can count on the following: 1) you will be assigned an academically-qualified and experienced researcher-writer; 2) while we employ both EFL and ESL writers, customers can always request that their work be handled by an EFL writer – we give you this option despite our complete faith in and absolute knowledge of our ESL writers’ linguistic expertise, linguistic proficiency and fluency; 3) your confidentiality is always guaranteed and your writer, despite the option of direct communication and messaging between the both of you, is never privy to your name or contact details; 4) the work you receive is always fully compliant with your instructions; 5) we never leave you hanging but immediately inform you whether or not your work can be completed within the deadline you specified; 6) you may rest assured that before you receive your work, it has been thoroughly vetted by our Quality Assurance Department for both quality and plagiarism; 7) we will never ignore your messages and customers can always get in touch, not only with the Operations Manager of the website through which they placed their order but with any of Oxbridge Researchers’ partners and top management people; and 8 ) we are a legitimate, UK-registered organization, with a presence in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Saudi Arabia and Egypt – so wherever you are, you have the option of physically meeting with one of our managers or partners.

Naturally, Oxbridge Researchers Ltd is completely biased in favour of the academic custom writing services it offers through thessayist.com, ukessayist.com, hdessays.com, dissertationist.com, phdessayist.com, aussiessayist.com, usessayist.com and phdessayist.com. We are a legitimate company which offers flawless academic model custom writing services. Our very natural partiality towards ourselves and our services, however, does not blind us to the presence of several other excellent companies in this industry. Academic Answers, for example, is a UK-based company which, through ukessays.com, oxbridgewriters.com and several other websites, offers customers a truly remarkable service. Both the service they extend and the work they provide customers is distinguished by their excellent, plagiarism-free and professional nature. As a matter of fact, despite Oxbridge Researchers’’ partiality towards its own services, it cannot deny that Academic Answers is one of the industry’s most important leaders.

Some readers may assume that Oxbridge Researchers identified Academic Answers as a fully legitimate and excellent company because we share a nationality – British. This is not at all true as despite the popular hype regarding the inherently dishonest nature of non-Western academic custom writing companies, there are some truly excellent ones, with Brownie Freelance Ltd standing out as a case in point. One of the most successful companies in the academic custom writing industry, Brownie Freelance is a UK registered company with a physical presence in London. The Director, a Ukrainian gentleman, adheres to a strategy of honesty. Hence, through customwritings.com, one of the several websites owned by Brownie Freelance, they openly admit that they originate from the Ukraine and operate their call centre there. They further acknowledge that they hire ESL writers, as well EFL ones. That they make these declarations is a clear indication of their respect for customers and potential customers, whereby they provide them with honest information as opposed to false advertising claims. That they make these admissions quite clearly shows that they are fully confident that they will provide customers with an excellent service and even better paper, irrespective of whether they are British or Ukrainian or whether your writer is ESL or EFL. They neither need to lie about who they hire and who they are as they know that they will provide you with nothing short of excellence.

That Oxbridge Researchers should devote so much space to acknowledging competitors, rather than promote its own model custom writing network, thessayist.com, hdessays.com, dissertationist.com, aussiessayist.com, ukessayist.com, usessayist.com and phdessayist.com, is nothing other than an expression of the ethics to which we are determine to adhere to. We will not slam our competitors, as others do, nor will we dismiss them as scammers. Our competitors are just that – competitors and not enemies. Besides, were we to label all in the industry as scammers, what would that say about us? What message would it give customers and potential clients? It would say that we, at Oxbridge Researchers, cannot establish a reputation or a place for ourselves in the industry via the services we offer through thessayist.com, hdessays.com, dissertationist.com, aussiessayist.com, ukessayist.com, usessayist.com and phdessayist.com and, therefore, have to badmouth our competitors in order to scare customers away from them. As for the message we will be communicating, it is one which quite effectively warns customers to stay away from this industry as it is full of scammers and that companies within disrespect the principle of clean and fair competition. This is not true.

Yes, the model academic custom writing industry is a controversial one with much of the controversy surrounding it resulting from the tendency to slam competitors, thereby labelling the entire industry as dishonest. This is not at all true as while there is a large number of completely unethical and absolutely unqualified companies in the industry, there is a number of highly honest, completely qualified and excellent companies as well. Hence, while Oxbridge Researchers would prefer that you place your model custom written dissertation, thesis, essay, research paper or term paper order through thessayist.com or one of our other websites, it assures you that should you choose to opt for another company, you will find some good ones out there. Importantly, do not forget to separate the wheat from the chaff while making your company selection. Our article on how to do so may be accessed via http://www.prlog.org/10275471-selecting-an-academic-custom-writing-service.html.

As for whether or not the use of a model academic custom writing services constitutes plagiarism that is the topic for another article, to be published soon. Meanwhile, please visit us through http://www.oxbridge-researchers.org or http://www.thessayist.com to familiarise yourself with our services and who we are.

College and University Application Management Service

While these are the summer months for students and a time for relaxation and enjoyment, countless are worrying over one of the most important decisions they will ever make in their lives – a decision which is likely to have a profound effect on their futures and career-paths. Which college or university should they apply to? While British, American, Canadian and Australian students have probably made that decision already and, with the help of their school’s academic advisor, sent off their application forms months ago, overseas students have not. Indeed, countless Chinese, Asian and Middle Eastern students, intent on pursuing their university studies in the United States or Great Britain are rather confused about where to go and how to go about it. This is where Oxbridge Researchers Ltd steps in.

While a British company, Oxbridge Researchers is culturally and geographically positioned to help overseas students gain admission into universities and colleges in the United States, Great Britain and Australia. The reason? Oxbridge Researchers’ managers and owners are geographically dispersed across four continents, making them accessible to nearly all and, have a solid and experienced network of professional academicians in place – a network which has the experience and expertise necessary to advise students on the universities most suited for them and to handle their entire university/college application process.

Oxbridge Researchers’ University/College Application Management Services requires minimal work and effort on the part of the student, leaving the work and the `headache’ to our academic specialists. As a student, all you need to do is contact us through http://www.oxbridge-researchers.org and we will immediately contact you back. A personal academic advisor and university/college application manager will be assigned to you. The selection of your personal advisor is determined by your personal preferences, your requirements and, importantly, your nationality or country of origin. For example, if you are a Chinese student, your personal advisor will have first-hand knowledge of your national system of education as well as of that of the country you are seeking to further your studies in. Similarly, if you are an Arab or Saudi Arabian student aspiring to apply to a university in the United States, you will be assigned an advisor who is knowledgeable about the Thanawiya Amma or the various educational systems in place across the Middle East and, of course, is (or was) a career academician in the United States.

After contact has been established with your personal advisor, you will be asked a series of questions pertaining to your preferred place of study (country and universities), your chosen major (if you have already made that decision), your tuition budget and your grades. Your advisor will then compile a list of the most suitable universities for you and explain what you might expect f r o m each – advantages and disadvantages. After you have made your selection (with the help of your personal advisor), Oxbridge Researchers Ltd will complete your application forms, mail them off to your selected universities and keep you appraised of the entire situation.

Apart f r o m the fact that Oxbridge Researchers offers invaluable guidance in helping you make your university/college decision, it maximises your chances of acceptance into your preferred college/university through the preparation and submission of a perfectly completed and written application form. As many of you already know, while your grades are the primary determinant of acceptance or rejection into your preferred university or college, your Admission Letter, Personal Statement and accurate and flawless completion of your academic application forms, exert a significant influence on the decision made by the Admissions Officer. If your form is not accurately completed, your application will not be considered; if your Personal Statement or Admission Letter are not perfectly written, engaging and expressive of your potential, your chances of acceptance are significantly reduced. Through the perfect and flawless completion of your application forms, Oxbridge Researchers maximises your chances of gaining admission into the university of your choice.

So, if you want to become all that you can be, allow Oxbridge Researchers to help you. If you are unsure which university is best for you, we will guide you; if you have already chosen your university, we will maximise your chances of acceptance. Taking out our University/College Application Management Service is an investment in your future and a golden opportunity for you to maximise your potential for success. Think of it this way: in Oxbridge Researchers you have a partner not a service; you have a friend intent on helping you succeed and not an impersonal service provider interested only in your service.

Debatepedia Documents All Pros And Cons Of Merit Pay For Teachers

Debatepedia has developed the world’s most extensive article on the pros and cons of merit pay for teachers. The article draws over 30 pro and con arguments and quotations from over 20 of the most outstanding editorials, opinion pieces, essays, and political statements on the issue. And, it structures these arguments and quotations in Debatepedia’s unique pro/con “logic tree” structure. The structure helps separate the primary sub-debates (and arguments and counter-arguments) in this debate, which are represented by some of the following questions: Does merit-based pay improve education? Does it improve the quality of teaching by incentivizing hard work? Does it help attract and retain quality teachers? Does it help weed out bad teachers? Does merit pay distract teachers? Does it create undesirable competition between teachers? Does it discourage teachers from going to needy schools? Can teacher merit be successfully measured? Or does varying student performance get in the way? Is merit pay fairer to teachers? Does it fall pray to principal cronyism? Does it encourage teachers to cheat? Does the market demonstrate the importance of pay for performance? If teachers should be paid more in general, is merit pay the best way to do it? What do past examples of merit pay around the world demonstrate? Debatepedia’s community has outlined the pros and con arguments and quotations that fit within and respond to the above sub-debate questions, making it truly the most comprehensive breakdown of the debate available.

President Obama has repeatedly stated his support for merit pay for teachers. Yet, with many priorities on his plate, it would appear that the debate will continue for some time, and even after any policy decisions are made, the debate is likely to continue for years to come, in the United States and abroad. For this reason, Debatepedia’s pro/con structure is particularly valuable in helping walk citizens and decision-makers through the many arguments and quotations so that they can effectively deliberate, make decisions, and make the policy that will guide education in the 21st century.

Debatepedia is a wiki encyclopedia of pros and con arguments and quotations. It is essentially “the Wikipedia of pros and cons”. Started in 2006 by Brooks Lindsay and William Wnekowicz out of Georgetown University, Debatepedia subsequently merged with the International Debate Education Association in 2007. IDEA is a 501c3 non-profit piloted initially by the Open Society Institute in 1999. While IDEA promotes debate in all of its forms around the world, Debatepedia fits within its mission to expand a new industry in journalism – what it calls the “in-depth journalism of public debates”.

Bigmouthmedia reveal that the majority of recent Scottish university graduates feel that higher education is failing to adequately prepare leavers for life in the real world and opportunities in emerging industries

Bigmouthmedia has revealed that the majority of recent Scottish university graduates feel that higher education should do more to connect students to opportunities in emerging industries and that universities are failing to adequately prepare leavers for life in the real world.

According to a wrap up of 2008 graduate intelligence, harvested by bigmouthmedia from a series of recruitment events, the majority of Scotland’s class of 2008 believed that the education system is not properly aiding the transition from student life. Some 56% of the recent graduates polled believed that university had not sufficiently prepared them for life in the business world.

The research revealed a worrying lack of awareness about opportunities in 21st Century industries. Over 46.3% of those surveyed said they knew little about opportunities in digital marketing and felt that universities should help increase awareness of such emerging industries.

Some 39% also believed they should have been told more about the search marketing sector during their time in higher education.

Respondents revealed a tendency to use online media to supplement gaps in the curriculum. Some 89% said that they had learned more about search engine optimisation and online marketing reading a range of industry blogs such as Search Engine Land and Search Engine Watch.

The research also revealed that a career in search marketing is beginning to appeal to university leavers from disciplines not typically attracted to the sector. While 24.4% of the recent graduates enquiring about a career in the industry had marketing/advertising degrees and 29.3% had been studying ICT/Computing, the clear majority – 46.3% – had studied unrelated subjects.

The results indicated that this broadening attraction could in part be due to the perception of the digital marketing as a ‘hot’ industry, with an overwhelming 80% stating that they believed the sector offered a more glamorous career than television marketing.

The graduate groups questioned also revealed a preference for remaining North of the border after leaving university. Some 95% of the graduates questioned said they would prefer to pursue a high-tech or marketing career in Scotland if possible.

The Kid Whisperers Are Helping Kids Discover Their True Potential And Gift Within

The Kid Whisperers Ask The Obama Family To Give a TV Address This Holiday Season That Empowers Kids to Rise Above the Failing Educational System

Entrepreneurs, Sue Woodward and daughter, Wendy Garrido, BA Psychology and Economics, University of Chicago are The Kid Whisperers, helping kids discover their true potential.

In 2007, they founded North Star Family Matters Magazine, the only magazine dedicated to the emotional health of kids and families. Now they have written a television presentation using their trademark system, Engage Aloud™ Questions, and are asking the Obamas to deliver this message to the children of the world.

Woodward says, “Now is the time in history for every child to hear that their success and well-being are the most important item on the national agenda. We help kids discover their innate potential and their right to ask for their needs to be met. The Obama family could be the most empowering messengers to remind kids what they’re capable of.”

The plan includes a script for a TV address and a network of volunteers to follow-up and work with children via Skype. Garrido states, “Rather than waiting for the educational system to change, we empower children to rise above the system and recognize their potential and gift within. The fact is that within every child is an enthusiastic learner. The problem is that most kids don’t believe they’re smart.”

Kids come into the world motivated to learn. It’s our job to keep that love of learning alive because no kid wants to be a failure. In just a short amount of time The Kid Whisperers get to the root of the problem, consulting and working with kids to let them figure out their own answers.

As the following demonstrates, The fcat is wee cn reed no mttaer waht the wrods lok lik or in waht oredr the ltteres are in. So raednig is aoubt mroe tahn jsut phnoics.

“Learning is about the brain figuring things out, in reading and in life, and it happens in its own unique way. We can’t tell a kid how to ride a bike. We can offer support, but ultimately they have to be motivated to get on the bike and figure it out. When it comes to school, our job is to give them the belief that they can and will figure it out.”

The latest brain research shows that how we feel about ourselves in the world might be the biggest factor in addictive behavior. The future of treating drug and alcohol addiction is to empower kids at a young age with the truth that they have a gift to bring to the world.

Parents, relatives, and kids can write a letter of support to The Kid Whisperers, which will be forwarded on to the Obamas, asking them to give the gift of empowerment to all children this holiday season.
