Joanne is a trained Early Childhood Educator specialised in Dyslexic studies. She has worked with toddlers, preschoolers, school-aged and secondary children since 2004. Research has shown that pre-school age is the best and most effective time to help learners with learning difficulties. Hence, Joanne started focusing on helping preschoolers with reading and writing difficulties as she realised that Early Intervention is critical. It takes a village to educate a child. Other than working with young children, she has also trained teachers and conduct awareness talks for parents. Joanne hopes through her little efforts, more children can benefit and leap into their learning journey with confidence.
