PRLog - Sep. 24, 2012 - SAN ANTONIO -- San Antonio, TX – AVANCE (ah-vahn-ceh) is proud to announce that Richard J. Noriega, AVANCE President and CEO, joins NBC’s Education Nation Summit as a panelist on Dual Language: Geddes and the Science of Child Development panel. NBC’s Education Nation Summit brings to the forefront the most critical education issues facing the country by convening opinion leaders in education, government, business, philanthropy and media for a three-day event running from September 23rd to the 25th.

Live from the New York Public Library, AVANCE President, Richard J. Noriega, Virginia Castro, Principal of Geddes Elementary School in California and Patricia Kuhl, Professor of Speech & Hearing Sciences at the University of Washington; will discuss child development, literacy, dual language, and minority students. Moderated by MSNBC’s Alex Witt, the panel will feature one of ten case studies of schools and programs from around the country that have implemented targeted solutions in their communities, and have seen demonstrable success as a result.

The panel will serve as an opportunity to highlight how the AVANCE program for 39 years has been successfully teaching parents who struggle with literacy, and helping them develop strategies that are critical to their child’s development.  

President Noriega explains, “Because parents are the primary language models for their children, we teach our parents ways in which they can interact with their children to promote language development. AVANCE parents learn the importance of increasing their child’s vocabulary through bilingual education and literacy. Parents are encouraged to speak in their native language, learn English and pursue higher educational opportunities.”  

Show your support by watching the panel live on www.educationnation.com and commenting via social media on Tuesday, September 25th at 7:55 a.m. CST.
