Emily Byrd is a Fulbright-Mitacs Globalink Research Intern under the supervision of Hélène Deacon. She is currently working with the Language and Literacy Lab at Dalhousie University on the Leaps and Bounds Project as a research assistant.

Emily hopes that this research will be beneficial for educators, parents, and students as literacy is vital to the educational experience.
