World Renowned Reading Program Now Available to Non-Professionals

Launch Coincides With Dr. Caleb Gattegno Centennial Celebrations and UNESCO's International Literacy Day

NEW YORK, Sept. 7, 2011 /CNW/ - Educational Solutions Worldwide Inc. (ESWI) today announced the launch of the first ever edition of the world-renowned Words In Color reading program that is suitable for use outside the traditional classroom format.

The launch comes during this year's centennial of the birth of Dr. Caleb Gattegno, who developed Words In Color to solve the problem of literacy, and has been timed to coincide with UNESCO's International Literacy Day (Sept. 8).

"Dr. Gattegno was a member of the UNESCO mission on literacy in Ethiopia in 1957 when he got the first inspiration that would lead to the development of Words in Color," said ESWI CEO Eaton Donald. "The system of breaking down the entire English language into its basic phonetic sound groups and codifying them in color was quickly adopted in more than 40 counties. "

The Words in Color 100th Anniversary Edition can be used without special training on the part of the person who is teaching the program and is ideal for parents wishing to participate in their children's education. The edition is also highly accessible to para-professional teachers of English wishing to make a positive impact on their students of any age.

On International Literacy Day each year, UNESCO reminds the international community of the status of literacy and adult learning globally. Despite many and varied efforts, literacy remains an elusive target: some 793 million adults lack minimum literacy skills which means that about one in six adults is still not literate; 67.4 million children are out-of-school and many more attend irregularly or drop out. 

"We are determined more than ever to spread what we believe is a solution to literacy that is designed to use our natural abilities to learn and is, therefore, guaranteed to bring success to those who choose to adopt it," said Mr. Donald.

Educational Solutions is offering the special edition at a discounted price during the Gattegno anniversary.  Please, use coupon code READ25 at checkout.
