Things can go wrong if children struggle with discerning the sounds of letters, understanding letters/words and comprehending sentence structure. When children begin to write, additional pressure is piled on and expectations are higher. No wonder learning to read and write can be so challenging and sometimes overwhelming for a lot of children.

Reading is not a natural ability, it has to be learned in the correct way. With this program, FYD aims to identify and remedy delays or deficiency in reading skills. We believe that most struggling readers can overcome their difficulties if they receive appropriate intervention at the earliest possible time. Reluctant readers will also benefit immensely from this program.

We aim to identify the nature of a child's difficulty and build upon his or her strengths. Our specialists will design independent study plans to be used over the 4 week period. Reluctant readers always require extra motivation. Our program is designed to motivate children and encourage the love for reading.

Meet our tutors:


I am extremely pleased to be a part of the Foundation for Youth and Development FYD summer initiative intensive program. I graduated with deans list honors from the Early Childhood Education (ECE) program -George Brown College (GBC) Toronto Ontario in June 2009. I also hold a BA (Hons.) combined degree in Child Psychology/ Sociology and Anthropology Carleton University, Ottawa Ontario. Canada.
I currently work as a Special Educator- Applied Behavior Analyst at the Hansen Elementary school in Canton Massachusetts.

I have a lifelong interest in the academic growth and development of young child.
My cutting edge knowledge of developmentally appropriate best practices, special education, inclusion, emergent curriculum, small group learning and active supervision in a classroom setting has equipped me to work and contribute as a well informed and knowledgeable practitioner in the field of Early Childhood and Elementary Education.

In 2009, I participated in the International Work Experience and Field Placement in Kingston, Jamaica.
In 2011, I received City Kids Inclusion award from Lieutenant General of Ontario. This award was given to me for demonstrating developmental support to children with special needs. In 2009, I received a certificate of appreciation and recognition for my contribution for planning the pre-kindergarten curriculum and academic activities for children in ShortWoods Elementary school in Kingston Jamaica. I also received a Certificate of Completion for Behavioral intervention for young children. This program is called For Goodness Sake. I strongly believe that the FYD intensive reading initiative will afford me the opportunity to positively impact the well-being, academic and holistic development of children.


I am a qualified teacher with certificates in behavior analysis, a BA in History and I am currently pursuing a Masters in Education.
I have worked with children within the classroom in Nigeria since 1991.
In the last 10 years, I have focused on children with specific education needs within the classroom; working with children who have "labels" including Dsylexia, Global Developmental Delay, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Cerebral Palsy and Down's Syndrome.
I believe strongly that all children CAN learn.
I am the CEO and lead therapist at Foundation and Literacy Ltd, a company I founded to help and intervene in children with foundational delays in literacy. I have recorded significant successes and believe that early intervention and consistency are vital.
