DAS conducts regular research on our programmes in a continual bid to improve our services. Here are some of our current research:


1. Arithmetic abilities and phonological processing

Some studies have found that arithmetic performance to be linked to phonological processing abilities. This study aims to examine this relationship and also other abilities that might be related to arithmetic performance. 

2. Predictors of Reading Comprehension Ability amongst Singapore Children

This study aims to compare the predictors of reading comprehension ability between Singapore children with and without dyslexia.

3. Emotional Literacy of Students with Specific Learning Differences

Emotional Literacy is the ability to recognise, understand, handle and appropriately express emotions; and to recognise and respond appropriately to the emotions of others. We hope to gather important information that would help us formulate ways to help children found with difficulties in emotional literacy develop in this aspect



DAS also helps researchers to find participants for their research.  Here are some current research studies that are searching for participants.
