Reading, writing, confidence and happiness are not only fundamental rights, they are also all skills, which can be learned.
Geneva, Switzerland (PRWEB UK) 15 October 2013
Mila Publishing Sarl, publisher of the popular Secret Suitcase app and the Maks & Mila children’s books, is pleased to announce the eBook version of “Maks and Mila On a Special Journey.” The eBook will be available from October 15, 2013 in the iBooks Store.
During Dyslexia Awareness Month, the book will be offered for the special price of 1.99 USD to raise awareness for dyslexia as well as to make tools -- which can help children with dyslexia to read better as well as to regain their confidence -- more accessible.
Merel Bakker, CEO of Mila Publishing Sarl, states that: “Reading, writing, confidence and happiness are not only fundamental rights, they are also skills, which can be learned. It’s my mission to make these skills accessible to all and I hope the launch of this eBook during Dyslexia Awareness Month, will contribute to that.”
While as many as 15 to 20% of students in the United States may have dyslexia according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the International Dyslexia Association, only about 5% of dyslexics are recognized and receive the necessary assistance. This, while many people with dyslexia can learn to read and write well, if the condition is identified at an early stage and they get access to the right tools and assistance.
Furthermore, many children with dyslexia -- especially when they don’t get the appropriate help -- feel left out, depressed, have a low self-esteem, lack motivation to go to school and learn, and some of them might even end up with having suicidal thoughts. For those children, it’s extremely important to get access to tools that help them to build self-confidence as well as to tools that help them to read and write better.
Both the free Secret Suitcase app and the children’s book “Maks & Mila On a Special Journey,” feature an award-winning font that is easier to read for children with dyslexia, as well offer a practical tool to help children to become more confident and feel happier.
