Before attending the Glades Family Education program, Silvia was unable to read or write in any language. Now, she can speak, read and write in two languages, search the Internet with ease and help her children with their homework. Her children have attended the Glades’ program with her to develop school readiness skills. Rolando is now in fifth grade – in a class for gifted students. Mariana will start kindergarten with a strong foundation in the early literacy skills that lead to academic success.
