Learn Greek Study Resource Donates Funds For Down Syndrome Research.
Online PR News – 29-January-2012 – – The Greek language learning sector is embracing charity, corporate social responsibility, and medical research advancement with Greek123’s donation of funds for Down syndrome research. Down syndrome is a chromosomal condition that is often associated with impaired physical growth and cognitive abilities. Although the condition affects approximately one out of every 733 births and the symptoms afflict people from birth, there have been great strides in better understanding positive social development, appropriate educational techniques and clinical treatments that can help people with Down syndrome lead a fulfilled life as part of the community and society.
Because of advocacy and better understanding of the disease, many people with Down syndrome now receive specialized education, social settings and housing to enable them to lead healthy and productive lives. With research funded by entities such as Greek123, a company committed to teach people who want to learn Greek, teachers can understand how to help people with Down syndrome better develop cognitively, and doctors and scientists can better understand the underlying chromosomal differences to allow them to create more effective drug and treatment options to reduce symptoms of Down syndrome.
Greek123 is a Greek language and Greek translation learning system developed by Papaloizos Publications that specializes in teaching students from ages three all the way through adulthood to speak Greek. Papaloizos Publications’ teaching methods have been developed over 50 years of teaching Greek by Dr. Theodore C. Papaloizos, who started authoring Greek language textbooks in 1956. Written specifically for learning Greek, the system uses a mix of books, CDs, DVDs, workbooks and Greek online websites and computer products to maximize the effectiveness of Greek learning through mixed learning avenues.
