The Fogarty Foundation partners with DSF to empower parents and teachers to support their children’s literacy development and enhance their learning ability during school and beyond.

The Fogarty Foundation continues to work with the Dyslexia-SPELD Foundation supporting the delivery of the powerful BOOST program, teaching parents of children in Kindergarten through to Year Two about how literacy skills develop and how they can help their children learn to read.

The BOOST program assists parents to learn specific skills to help their children develop their literacy skills, and thereby enhancing their learning ability during school and beyond.

In 2018, the Foundation partnered with Dyslexia-SPELD Foundation to fund the delivery of BOOST into another 3 Fogarty EDvance Network schools, reaching over 300 parents during the three-year partnership. The schools are supported with workshops and take home materials, developing practical strategies and activities to build their children’s literacy skills.



We believe that it is essential that children at risk of literacy difficulties receive a good start to literacy learning both at school and at home.

The Boost program has 2 modes of delivery:
