My First Alphabet

|Publisher(s)||Atari Program Exchange|
Herrera's son, Steve, was born with severe cataracts and was pronounced blind by medical specialists. Refusing to place his son in remedial classes, Herrera wrote a program to help his son learn the alphabet. After several months, his son made rapid progress, overcoming his handicap. The program later evolved into My First Alphabet.
The game was the first APX Star Award winner (1981), winning $25,000 from Atari.
