Collaborate with DAS on Research

At the Dyslexia Association of Singapore (DAS), we believe in the power of research to drive positive change and empower individuals with dyslexia. Our commitment to evidence-based programmes for our students and a deep understanding of our clientele is at the heart of our mission. We invite you to join hands with us in this transformative journey of discovery and collaboration.

Why Collaborate with DAS on Research?

  1. Reinforcing Evidence-Based Programmes: Your research at DAS can directly contribute to the enhancement and refinement of evidence-based programmes for students who learn differently. Your findings have the potential to make a real impact in the lives of individuals with dyslexia, specific learning differences and those who struggle to learn.

  2. Regional Collaboration: DAS collaborates not only with local educational institutions but also with partners across the Asia Pacific region. Your research can foster connections and collaborations that transcend borders, enriching the collective knowledge base.

  3. International Exposure: DAS researchers have the opportunity to attend overseas conferences annually, where they can share their work, learn about the latest developments in dyslexia research, and network with international experts. Your research could take you to new heights.

  4. Rigorous Peer Review: Rest assured that your work will be rigorously evaluated by our highly esteemed Research Committee and Editorial Board. This peer review process ensures the quality and credibility of the research that goes into our publications.
