What is the MAP programme?

MAP or the MOE aided DAS Literacy Programme provides a comprehensive and quality curriculum to support dyslexic students facing literacy challenges. The MAP Curriculum integrates key essential learning components that are crucial in remediating students with learning difficulties.

• Phonemic Awareness and Phonics.

The provision of a multi-sensory and highly structured phonetic instruction through the Essential Literacy Approach (ELA) has been incorporated into MAP lessons to promote and facilitate reading and spelling development in our students.

• Reading Fluency

MAP lessons emphasize the importance of reading fluency through the deliberate planning of reading tasks that take into account students' reading fluency and accuracy to ensure that reading comprehension is not impaired by effortful and inaccurate reading.

• Reading Comprehension

As comprehension is a constructive and integrative process, MAP aims to equip students with the essential comprehending skills needed to draw inferences as well as to use general knowledge to make meanings and connections of what the students have read.

• Vocabulary

Beyond phonics, MAP explicitly emphasizes oral, reading and writing vocabulary development of sight and high frequency word instructions through the use of Assistive Technology to improve students' language acquisition skills.

• Writing

The MAP curriculum team has also developed localised writing packs, materials and resources that cater to the diverse learning needs of students to improve their writing skills.
