NEW YORK, Dec. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- For every parent who wants the very best for their children, there is one gift designed to provide higher self-confidence, better academic results and life-long achievement -- early learning skills. Numerous infant studies have proven that early readers have more confidence, higher self-esteem and generally perform better in school and later in life. According to a national panel of reading specialists and educators, most of the nation's reading problems could be eliminated if children began reading at an earlier age.

Dr. Robert C. Titzer is an expert infant researcher who has taught tens of thousands of babies and toddlers worldwide to read for nearly twenty years. He says the current practice of starting to teach reading skills in Kindergarten is too late. "A child has only one natural window for language, from 3 months to age 5. The earlier a child is taught to read, the better they will read and the more likely they will enjoy it. I believe this is the key to success throughout their lives." Dr. Titzer has witnessed firsthand the positive results of early reading skills worldwide.
International test scores have shown that countries, such as Russia and Singapore, who begin teaching learning skills earlier than the United States, can test better than American children of the same grade level. Barack Obama has also commented on the necessity for changes in educational procedures. "It's time to ask ourselves why other countries are outperforming us ... It's not that their kids are smarter than ours -- it's that they're being smarter about how to educate their kids." With the strong correlation between juvenile crime and illiteracy, plus the necessity for children to get as productive an educational start as possible, early learning skills are the greatest gift a parent can provide.
Dr. Titzer taught his own children to read as babies with an award-winning Early Language Development system he developed called "Your Baby Can Read!" For more information on early learning skills and "Your Baby Can Read!" visit http://www.yourbabycanread.com.
