DAS views itself as a social enterprise. We strive to be a sustainable business with a social mission. Our business is used as a means to help dyslexic people achieve. We reinvest our surpluses to fulfil our social objectives and in doing so, combine the entrepreneurial and business skills with our philanthropic mission characteristics as a not-for-profit organisation.

We provide high-quality, professional, innovative and client-focused solutions to create and sustain services for the dyslexic community in Singapore and the region.

We operate as a financially viable and cost-effective business which at the same time ensures that no dyslexic person is unable to access our services because they cannot afford it.

We generate social returns on our investments through the development of a dynamic, motivated team of highly qualified and experienced professionals.

We have a heightened sense of accountability to stakeholders through our professional management team.
