Devin began attending the YMCA of Southwest Florida's School Age Care program in the 1st grade. He could not sound out letters or read sight words. Devin didn't even score at a preschool level for early reading skills. YMCA staff connected with his teacher, school liaison, and his parents to work together to help Devin. In a few months, the extra support paid off - Devin was reading at grade-level and on target to advance into 2nd grade.
