2011 Literacy Champions

Karen Voght

Creator/Director, Alphabet Fitness Program, Boston and International

“I chose to start Wellness, Inc. in 1995 out of concern for the well being of children growing up in fast-paced, multi-media learning environments. In literate societies, fine-motor, alphabet-trained brains foster early learning habits and habitual neuromuscular patterns, but without proper amounts of gross motor activity the developing child does not benefit from balanced physical, cognitive, emotional and social growth. Since alphabets are the fundamental communication tools of most literate societies, I developed Alphabet Fitness and its kid friendly alphabet letters to enhance our current alphabet’s function as a reading and writing tool for children.”
