Imagine your employer has just handed you an important document to read and expects a full summary of the material on his desk by tomorrow. You take a look and see it is written in a language completely foreign to you. While you may be able to phonetically decipher the words and sound them out, you wouldn’t have any idea what the words you just read actually meant.
This might be an extreme case, but classrooms all over the nation are filled with students who experience the same type of frustration. Mrs. Montgomery and her 3rd Grade Class at Robert L. Stevenson Elementary School are a prime example.
Students of Robert L. Stevenson Elementary reside in an area that is prone to poverty. With limited resources available, Mrs. Montgomery’s class is full of 1st generation American students who are struggling to pass their reading benchmark.
In order to help these students, the school has implemented the Raz-Kids curriculum, an online interactive reading comprehension program. This program allows students to either listen to a story, or read a story on their own, then answer a series of questions. Without the use of headphones, these students would not be able to concentrate on what they are reading and inhibit their ability to clearly hear the pronunciation of words they are having trouble with.
After reading Mrs. Montgomery’s request for help, The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker, Inc. donated 20 brand new headphone sets to her class of deserving students. Our law firm strongly believes that the support and education of all our youth in California will help ensure a bright and positive future for our community.
The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker has a long history in Southern California. From auto accidents to work injuries to employment law, the experienced lawyers at The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker have successfully represented more than 100,000 clients. This donation is just another way that we’ll fight for you!®
