Worldwide Literacy 1 puts theory into
practice to give you the opportunity to
help your child become a lifelong reader.
Much research has been done on the
cause of illiteracy and the basic reason is
that children have not mastered basic
literacy skills; such as, self-help sounding,
building their sight word vocabulary,
reading with speed, fluency and rate,
developing comprehension skills, and
securing much interesting reading at their
present reading level.
Our philosophy is that parents are the
child's first teacher. Therefore, parents
have an amazing impact on how their
children will perform as students when
they reach school age.
As a parent, I can tell you that there is
nothing that will replace quality time that
you spend with your child. You can yell
"till blue in the face" about why they did
not get the grade, but the truth of the
matter is you have to take on some of this
responsibility for lack of the quality time
you spend with your child, and that lack is
not necessarily of any fault of your own --
Worldwide Literacy 1 understands that
parents work full-time, therefore leaving
very little quality time for your
child. We help you to maintain your
status as an A+ parent by providing
services for your success.
This website is dedicated in memory of
Professor Eugene Cramer of The
University of Illinois at Chicago who
taught and inspired me to be a reading
clinician. The Reading Clinic was
research-based. At that time, 1990's,
research confirmed that 25 million
Americans were classified as illiterate.
Due to Professor Cramer's efforts many
that would have been a statistic have
become lifelong readers.
The UIC Reading Clinic remains in
operation and is now run by Professor
Alfred Tatum who will help me in my
endeavor to implement CPS Reading
Clinics within the school system.
