APOGEE Somatic Phonics™ - A Revolutionary Breakthrough for Reading Disorders and Dyslexic Readers: Preparing Special Needs Learners for CCSS Success

Pleased to be a part of such a timely and most significant forum for exploration and exchange... 

I have read hundreds of posts in response to the newly adopted, "Core Standards." There is significant concern. A position must be established that assures our children's progress and well being. Most certainly 'standards' have inherent value, but are NOT to be instituted at the demise of a child's mental, physical and spiritual well being. Having worked in private practice with hundreds of learners, I have come to appreciate and value diversity, imaginative thinking, creativity, and learning styles that do not respond well to being 'boxed in.' The APOGEE Paradigm™ grew out of the call to give homage to the distant light ever present.

There is absolutely NO Stopping Me... I will present what being an educator, since 1960, has brought to bear... CHILDREN FIRST... Beyond a test score is the treasure of each child's BEING!! No curriculum, no "Core Standard" hold to value, if at 'core' they are not supportively responsive to each child's needs, learning style, intelligence, creativity and imagination... CHILDREN are not robots to be programmed... but BEINGS to be honored!!! Rose Marie Raccioppi
