CHANGING THE WORLD ONE SOUND AT A TIME
A STORY WORTH READING
A little boy who could not read and a father who did not give up - that was the beginning of Dr. Eldo Bergman's lifelong pursuit of changing lives all over the world.
Here at Family Literacy Network, we have been dedicated to helping people become effective readers since 1996. We strive to make a positive impact on the future for children and adults, with or without diagnosed disabilities (e.g. dyslexia).
Family Literacy Network's explicit reading instruction is on the cutting edge of reading science. Our students have gone on to make a difference in career fields such as military intelligence, engineering, scientific research, and many more. Our program has even gone to space!
Family Literacy Goes into Orbit!
NASA astronaut Christopher Cassidy took one of our Student Readers along on his July 2009 trip to space with the Endeavor STS-127 mission to the International Space Station. He inscribed the book and sent this autographed NASA photograph from space:
"Thank you for your 'out of this world' reading program. Our family is forever grateful... What you do is remarkable."
