Salt Lake City, UT, December 24, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Reading Horizons is awarding a free software package to Cecily and Nicole of Pennsylvania, its latest spotlights for the Lemons for Literacy donation program.
Cecily, 17, and Nicole, 15, are sisters who struggle with learning disabilities and have not received the needed assistance from their school. Both girls have high aspirations and don’t want to be hindered by their learning disabilities. Despite the lack of assistance they have received from their school, they have strived to improve their situations. They make large strides in progress only to have the problems presented by their learning disabilities disrupt their efforts. The Reading Horizons program will help these girls move past the barriers in their reading development.
Those who would like to help Reading Horizons sponsor its new spotlight, 8 year old Adam of Indiana, are invited to visit the Reading Horizons Web site and play “Lemons for Literacy.” Lemons for Literacy is a simple, entertaining game in which players match terms with their appropriate definitions. For each correct answer, a lemon is squeezed into a pitcher. With every lemon that is squeezed, the amount that Reading Horizons donates to Adam increases. Donations will help provide Reading Horizons software for Adam. The Lemons for Literacy Web site can be found at: http://www.readinghorizonsathome.com/lemonsforliteracy/.
Adam is an 8 year old from Indiana who has struggled with reading due to his dyslexia. He was held back in first grade and is now in second grade struggling with reading. He was diagnosed with both dyslexia and ADHD last spring, unfortunately, his school does not have a program in place for children with dyslexia. He is a bright child with a high IQ and needs this program to give him the best chance at success. With success he and his mother would like to be able to help other kids in their town with their reading struggles. With Reading Horizons software this will be possible, as one user, Bernadine, said: “It was like I was walking down a hallway with doors, and all of them were locked. After going through this program, I was given the keys to open them. Anything is possible now.”
