    (BPRW) Developmental Delays: Catching the Culprit

    - (BLACK PR WIRE) – Perhaps Dr. Seuss would say,
    "As children grow, abilities show.
    And they began to prosper.
    But if they pause, it’s a concern for all.
    So assistance we must foster."

    As a child grows so do their abilities to perform and achieve age appropriate tasks. These age appropriate tasks/abilities are known as developmental milestones. But what happens when these developmental milestones are not met or missed, and a child can not accurately perform age appropriate tasks? Knowing which specific areas that any developmental delays exist is the key to correcting any problems. Identifying these areas is the sole purpose of iOT Screener.

    iOT Screener is a FREE multiplatform app developed by Dr. Frederick B. Covington, OTD, to assure and assist in the proper development, well-being, and intervention (if needed) for children. The app does this by allowing a user to input general information about the child and themselves and answer a series of simple Yes/No questions. For children under the age of five, the app’s questions pertain to developmental milestones and progress typical to the child’s age. For children over the age of five/school aged the app looks at maladaptive traits or behaviors that may affect academic performance or everyday tasks.

    When the questions are completed, the user is presented with an analysis. For children ages under 5, the app reveals what percentages of developmental milestones are currently being met. For the children over five/school aged, it reveals the percentage of maladaptive traits observed. The ratings are categorized as;

    No Concern: Functioning Within Normal Limits
    Minimal Concern
    Moderate Concern
    Maximal Concern

    Having this knowledge not only informs a caregiver but allows for any needed intervention. Any individual that proceeds through life without successfully achieving developmental milestones is a recipe for academic failure and scholastic latency. We must begin to look at children the same way an architect looks at building a home. If the architect has a million dollars to build a home, he would not spend a mere $1000 to lay the foundation. If so, everything that is built on top of that faulty foundation is bound to fall. Using iOT Screener allows for that steady foundation to be laid. This allows parents, educators, therapists, and any caregiver to later build upon that solid foundation and have assurance that progress can and will continue.

    - “an omen in one community

    Letter Sounds Save Their Soul
    Secret to Reading Success for African American Children
    By Vanessa Peters, Reading Specialist

    Winning the Reading Lottery

    ‘Letter Sounds Save Their Soul’ reveals a carefully guarded secret;

    3rd grade African American children’s reading skills beating out state averages after being taught a back to basics learning to read system called Direct Instruction.

    Is the first book to focus exclusively on the power of using rhythm and sounds to teach reading to Black children, and to refocus learning to read as a unique system that taps into their God-given talent of rhythm and soul. Trains sound-sensitive minorities’ (children and adults) how to hear, manipulate and identify the smallest unit of letter sounds and demonstrates how those individual sounds flow easily into words and reading. Offers a 100% turnaround of a failed teaching policy that will cause 1/3 of all children who enter school for the very first time to emerge 12 years later functionally illiterate.

    Secret to Reading Success for African American Children

    Not being able to read literally robs the soul and kills the spirit of African American children across this nation. Letter Sounds Save Their Soul shows parents and guardians how to STOP the practice of turning Black readers into illiteracy statistics, stuck in a permanent underclass.

    National Get Outdoors Day

    In advance of National Get Outdoors Day tomorrow, the Ad Council and the US Forest Service have released new PSAs that promote outdoor activities for children. You can view the PSAs at:

    National Get Outdoors Day
         National Get Outdoors Day

    The PSAs encourage America’s youth—specifically African-American children—and their parents to spend more time outside at nearby forests and parks. According to the Forest Service, just over a third of African-American children aged 6 to 12 participated in regular outdoor recreation in 2011, which is 30 percent lower than Caucasian children in the same age range.


    The benefits of outdoor activities are clear— lower stress levels and obesity rates, stronger immune systems, and a greater degree of environmental consciousness. You can contribute to our campaign by sharing our PSAs with your readers or pointing them to to find great outdoor activities at forests, parks and open spaces in their local area.

    Princess Me

    - Just published is a book based on a true story – one that every girl dreams about – about becoming a princess. -

    While at The Learning Experience® (TLE®), a national academy of early education for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years, Lydia, an African-American girl, shared with classmates that she wanted to be a princess. She was immediately told by her peers that she wasn’t “white enough” and her hair wasn’t “long enough” to be a princess. A deflated Lydia was comforted by TLE® center director Shelly Coss who heard about the incident and decided to go a step further and teach the youngsters that anyone can grow up to be anything they wanted to be regardless of race or hair length. Shelly even showed the class pictures of princesses from all over the world.

    Lydia’s mother, Rita Hutchings, heard about the extra effort that was put forth by the TLE® Wayne, New Jersey, center staff which inspired her to write Princess Me: Every Girl Can Be A Little Princess.

    In her book, Rita acknowledges The Learning Experience writing, “Many thanks [must go] to the staff at the Learning Experience Academy of Early Education who promote respect, acceptance and appreciation of the rich diversity of children from all cultures. They provide a nurturing, safe and happy environment exposing children to a wide array of cultural backgrounds at an early age, while encouraging an open-minded viewpoint for the future.”

    Princess Me is now available on Amazon.

    As background, The Learning Experience® is the country’s fastest growing early learning academy for children 6 weeks to 6 years old with over 175 centers nationwide. With a greater national emphasis on educational development during the first six years of a child's growth, TLE® prepares children academically and socially via innovative scholastic and enrichment programs such as L.E.A.P® curriculum, a cutting-edge proprietary approach to learning which has 90 percent of TLE® children graduating preschool reading at a Kindergarten or greater level. To complement the academic portion, various enrichment programs crucial to advancing learning and overall balance will be discussed and demonstrated, such as baby yoga, music, physical fitness, manners and etiquette, philanthropy and Spanish language.

    So In Style(TM) Barbie(R) Creator's Multi-Cultural Doll Company Moves to Wall Street

    - Former Mattel(TM) Doll Designer, Stacey McBride-Irby, and Her New Line of Multi-Cultural Dolls Make History With Stock Market Debut -

    HOUSTON, Jan. 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- One World Holdings (OTCBB:OWOO), parent company to The One World Doll Project, Inc., announced today that it has completed the process of taking the company public and that FINRA has designated its stock symbol as "OWOO." Prior to getting its stock symbol, the Company had filed a Registration Statement with the SEC which had gone effective on December 19, 2012.

    "We are excited about becoming a public company because this represents a major milestone in setting the stage for One World to be a real competitor in the doll and toy arena. This move will also provide liquidity for our shareholders and facilitate future capital formation and growth," stated Joanne Melton, CEO. "As a public company we expect to make big steps forward in 2013 as we introduce The Prettie Girls! OWP, our unique multi-cultural doll line, to a market that we believe has been waiting for high quality dolls to represent true racial and ethnic diversity," she added.

    About The One World Doll Project
    In her 15 years at Mattel(TM), Stacey McBride-Irby designed and created countless fashions and concepts for the iconic Barbie(R) line. Most notably, Stacey created an entire new line for the company, the So In Style(TM) dolls, the first African-American Barbie dolls by Mattel which, according to Stacey, "more closely represented contemporary girls and young women in the diverse and dynamic urban community". Now she is using her love of doll making and design to create dolls with The One World Doll Project, Inc.

    The One World Doll Project has developed an exciting line of multi-cultural and fashion dolls that it expects will have a major impact in the months ahead. The Prettie Girls! OWP doll line is unique in the way they look, their backgrounds and their stories that capture the essence of what every little girl can embrace and relate to. The Prettie Girls! Ms. McBride-Irby, along with the One World Doll Project, believes that little girls and their mothers are looking for images of beauty and fashion that mirror the same colors, shapes and physical characteristics that they themselves possess.

    The overall vision of the company is to introduce a new way mainstream dolls are designed, marketed and integrated into the fabric of America. The One World Doll Project's core mission is to make one of the most significant, positive cultural impacts on play and in the doll category in recent history.
