Role: Professional with expertise in this field
Rating: 5 stars  

I am the lead coordinator of Mended Little Hearts of Orlando, a non-profit support group for children and families touched by congenital heart defects. The Literacy Alliance assisted us during a few of our meetings, working with our heart kids and their siblings while their moms, dads and caregivers had our own meeting.
The Literary Alliance is a wonderful organization, professional, with an expertise in the learning styles of children. I would feel honored to have them at every meeting we hold. Children of all ages will benefit, both socially and educationally, by experiencing this team at work.
