YokyWorks is a Sound Foundation for Reading.

It's time to stop waiting for children to fail.

Our program targets the signs of reading difficulties like dyslexia before they become a barrier to success. Our dynamic 1:1 sessions are fast-paced, fun, and fully online with explicit, logical, sequential, and multisensory instruction in phonemic awareness and early phonics.

Research shows that reading intervention works best when implemented early.* But, there is often a wide gap between the moment children show signs of reading difficulties and the start of intervention. YokyWorks helps close this gap with online early reading intervention, specially designed for children ages 5-8, and remediation services for older students. 


Take Action. YokyWorks is a Sound Foundation that Works.

 We offer free screening and flexible session times to fit your family's needs.

Early intervention  shouldn't be hard to find.


Our founder, Yoky Matsuoka, struggled for years to find the right intervention for her two children with dyslexia. In this process, she learned about the importance of early intervention and has dedicated her organization to connecting children at risk for reading difficulties with effective solutions. Yoky, who discovered she was dyslexic late in life, envisions a world where parents no longer need to struggle to find intervention for their children before reading becomes a barrier to their success.

What can you expect from YokyWorks?

Our early intervention program targets literacy skills that are seldom explicitly taught, giving every student in our care the tools and the confidence to reach their reading goals. No matter your child's education specialist, you can count on three things:


We take time to explore and understand each child's strengths and weaknesses with free screening and frequent progress checks.


We build strong relationships with our students by meeting them exactly where they are and keeping them engaged.


Our approach is not one-size-fits-all. We identify our students' unique strengths and adapt our program for their needs.

Early Intervention is

Failure Prevention.

Don't wait. While all children must receive reading instruction, acquiring the foundational skills required for reading is more difficult for children who are at risk for dyslexia. Research shows that reading intervention is most effective when implemented early, while the gap in reading ability between children at risk for dyslexia and their typically-developing peers is still small.  

What do parents say?

"The sessions were engaging to allow our child to sustain focus in an area of weakness where other programs failed."
"The virtual session option was fantastic for our child. We would highly recommend this program and wish we found it earlier."
"This program was very comprehensive and our child said that it did make a difference in both reading and writing."
"We would highly recommend this program and think it is so valuable to students who need individualized reading instruction."
"For the first time, my son is talking about reading and genuinely enjoys reading to his family."


"The instructor was very engaging, fostering a desire to persist and learn."
