COLUMBUS, Ohio – Researchers have found a surprising way to help boost the skills of children with language impairment: Pay their parents to read to them.  A new study tested four techniques to get parents or other caregivers to complete a 15-week literacy intervention for their children with language impairment.  Only one of those techniques – paying parents 50 cents for each reading session – led to children showing significant gains in reading test scores, findings showed.  “We were somewhat stunned to find that paying parents had this strong effect. We didn’t anticipate this,” said Laura Justice, lead author of the study and professor of educational psychology at The Ohio State University.  The other three techniques tried in the study were offering positive feedback to the parents, offering encouragement, and modeling to parents how to read in a way that improved children’s literacy skills.  None of these three was helpful, and offering feedback actually had a slight…

LGBTQutie.com Sponsors GayDays Orlando 2014, Announces National Rollout of All-Inclusive Dating and Social Networking Site for the LGBTQ Community

NEW YORK, May 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Every year, GayDays draws more than 150,000 people to central Florida for a week of celebration and community. Among this year's event sponsors is LGBTQutie.com, the online dating and networking portal that's taking the country by storm.
For more than twenty years, GayDays Orlando has provided an opportunity for people from around the world to meet and greet other members of the LGBTQ community. GayDays festivities fall into three main categories: theme park visits, hotel events, and city events. Organizers rightly describe the seven-day party as an "all-over-town, something-for-everyone extravaganza." This year's event runs from June 3 to 9.
GayDays generates an estimated $600 million in economic stimulus for the greater Orlando economy, so ensuring the week kicks off without a hitch is important. Making that possible are the many sponsorship partners like LGBTQutie.com. "We're very excited to be sponsors of GayDays and to announce our site's availability in all 50 states," said Jordan Weiss, co-founder of LGBTQutie.com. "With such a strong response to the service we offer, the team agreed that now is the time to go national. All of LGBTQutie.com's great features will remain the same, but members will soon notice an even larger and more diverse community taking shape."
Positioning itself as "progressive LGBTQ online dating," the site is serious about being all-inclusive. Pansexual, asexual, and intersex individuals are all welcome; no one is pigeon-holed. The optional LGBTQuestionnaire can provide compatibility insight but creates absolutely no obligation. LGBTQutie.com also serves a purpose beyond finding romance. In addition to searching for their significant other, free and paid members can make new friends or learn about community events. 
Since launching in November of last year, LGBTQutie.com has acquired thousands of members and racked up more than 15,000 Facebook likes, as the dating and social networking site has grown from just a few states to a nationwide phenomenon. The site is a proud member of the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, New York chapter.
About LGBTQutie.com
As members of the LGBTQ community, we have been on numerous dating sites over the years. Being a part of this community, we found it to be both challenging and frustrating for those looking tirelessly for meaningful romantic relationships. Most gay online dating sites are not inclusive of everyone in our community and focus mostly on "hook ups." The mission of LGBTQutie.com is to provide a safe haven for those in search of romantic relationships and friendships.
