About DAS

ABOUT DYSLEXIA ASSOCIATION OF SINGAPORE (DAS)

Registered in 1991, the Dyslexia Association of Singapore (DAS) is today a vibrant Social Service Agency with almost 300 full-time and part-time staff who provide a wide range of programmes for individuals who learn differently, including persons with dyslexia and specific learning differences (SpLDs) in Singapore. DAS Educational Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists and Specialist Psychologists provide services to over 3,500 preschool, primary and secondary school students in 12 centres all over Singapore.

DAS recognises that children who struggle to learn, including those with dyslexia and SpLDs, require a comprehensive and holistic range of programmes and services. SpLD Assessment Services, the DAS assessment arm, conducts assessments in areas such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), school readiness and more. The Main Literacy Programme, which is part-funded by the Ministry of Education, supports over 3,000 primary and secondary students and provides critical intervention in areas such as reading fluency and comprehension, spelling and writing.

Our SpLD Assessment Services conduct assessments in areas such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and school readiness, among others. These assessments provide valuable insights into each student’s learning profile, enabling us to tailor interventions and support strategies accordingly.

The Main Literacy Programme, partially funded by the Ministry of Education, is a cornerstone of our efforts, supporting over 3,000 primary and secondary students. This programme delivers critical interventions in reading fluency, comprehension, spelling and writing, empowering students to develop essential literacy skills.

In addition to the Main Literacy Programme, our English Language and Literacy Division offers specialised programmes to enhance English literacy skills across all levels of education. Our iReaCH™ programme focuses on improving reading comprehension and writing skills for students from Primary 1 to Secondary 5. Meanwhile, our iStudySmart™ programme aims to empower individuals who learn differently with essential skills for success in higher education and beyond. From Secondary 3 onwards, students can benefit from this programme, which covers time management, prioritisation, planning, organisation, tertiary writing and presentation skills.

Furthermore, through our Specialised Educational Services (SES) Division, DAS provides support in Mathematics, Chinese, Science and Speech and Language Therapy. We also offer programmes in non-academic pursuits such as Speech and Drama and ArtVenture, enriching students’ learning experiences and fostering holistic development.

Increasingly, DAS provides support for individuals who learn differently, including those with dyslexia, impacted by other SpLDs such as ADHD, dyspraxia, dyscalculia and non-verbal learning differences. Young adults in Institutes of Higher Learning can access assessment and specialist tutoring services to support their educational journey.

Presently, DAS needs to raise almost $3 million each year to provide bursaries for its lower-income students and reduce the need to increase programme fees.

The DAS training arm, DAS Academy, provides certificate courses, diploma and master’s level courses for the professional development of special needs, mainstream teachers and other educational professionals. This includes a diploma accredited by the International Dyslexia Association, the only course outside the United States to receive this honour. The aim is to build a pool of expertise in Singapore for the support of students with learning differences. DAS Academy also offers courses and workshops for parents and caregivers.
