It's All In The Attitude
A Positive Message for the Day!
 
There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror,and noticed she had only three hairs on her head. "Well," she said, "I think I'll braid my hair today?" So she did and she had a wonderful day. The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had onlytwo hairs on her head. "H-M-M," she said, "I think I'll part my hair down the middle today?" So shedid and she had a grand day. The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head. "Well," she said, "today I'm going to wear my hair in a pony tail." So she did and she had a fun, fun day. The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn'ta single hair on her head. "YEA!" she exclaimed, "I don't have to fix my hair today!" Attitude is everything. Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle. Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
 
 The AVKO Educational Research Foundation founded in 1974 has as its mission thefollowing:To determine what makes the learning of reading and spelling so difficult for some andso easy for others. 
1.
To determine what it is about our language that good readers learn without beingtaught that poor readers don't. 
2.
To determine whether or not that which poor readers don't learn is ever systematicallytaught and if it isn't, if it can be. 
3.
To devise techniques and materials to enable teachers (or parents) to systematicallyteach poor readers and/or poor spellers that which schools presently are not teaching. 
4.
To widely disseminate its discoveries of techniques and materials that enabledyslexics to learn to read and to spell.
5.
The AVKO Educational Research Foundation has achieved the first four points of itsmission. It would like to go out of existence IF AND
ONLY IF
AVKO can find another non-profit organization that can and will achieve its 5th mission point: "
to widelydisseminate AVKO's techniques and materials
."
 AVKO is looking for a university that would like to be the beneficiary of AVKO's assets whenAVKO goes out of existence in ten or fifteen years from now. AVKO is also looking for venture capitalists to form a profit making publishing firm that wouldfeature the AVKO line.
