We are grateful to parents for trusting us with your child's education.

 

My son was diagnosed with ADHD when he was in kindergarten. I did not notice he was dyslexic until he went to primary 1. When he was in primary 1, it started off with the mirror image spelling. I thought something was strange, and I started to do some research on the internet. I thought it was unsual for a kid, who spoke like a mature adult, but severly lacked with his spelling abilities. I went for the free screening at Marine Parade Branch, and discovered his dyslexic level was high. I asked how much was the fee was pychological assessment and the cost for the tuition there, I couldn't afford it as I'm a single parent and I have too many responsilities to handle on my own. His education worsened as time went by, espcially with his spelling. His teacher provided negligible assistance for my son and believed his insufficiences was simply lazyness. As a parent, I believed my son was not that slow at learning but suffered with dyslexia, however I couldn't afford the fees. I decided to call the DAS in search for advice. I was told I could apply for a bursary and financial assistance can be granted for lower income family. I decided to apply for the bursary and send my son there for tuition. He started quite late. His reading significantly improved  since going to the classes at DAS. Today, my son took his PSLE, and I was very pleased with the results. As a result of his results, he had the opportunity to attend both academic or technical. He scored 155 for his PSLE. I did not expect him to score high grades, I always tell him, I'm grateful as long as he passed. I did not pressure my kid as I understand his learning abilities. Before getting his results just now, I was preparing for the worst, cause he didn't peform well in his prelims. I am just thankful with the help of teachers at DAS, especially Zaiton who's been instrumental with guiding my son with his PSLE preparation. I really would like to thank DAS for enabling my son's education and providing myself financial assistance and for other needy families. I don't think my son would be able to pass his exam without the help of DAS. I'm so happy that kids, despite their learning differences and financial grievances are able to learn and succeed. Thank you for giving my son the education he needed, that the teachers at school failed to give. Thank you DAS!

The DAS Math Programme has met my expectations in building a firm foundation for my son. The programme is able to simplify and uses more hands-on approach to make mathematical concepts more effective and concrete for the children to understand. The worksheets are not intimidating to him and he throughly enjoys attending the classes. Ms Albel is also extremely patient and understanding with the kids' challenges and difficulty in grasping the computation and perception. Thank you.  It will be ideal if there's a programme for Secondary School.

N* and E* both had such an enriching experience this year. I’ve seen Evan change from a shy and passive boy to a more confident and sporting boy who is not stage shy! Thank you especially for believing in N* and encouraging him to conquer so many lines! He just loves drama now and we are so absolutely delighted by his developing abilities too.

I find studying in DAS interesting because I learnt a lot of new words and was taught how to spell them. The teachers have very been kind to me. The teachers are: - Ms Zaiton Bakir, Mr Roslan Saad and Ms Rosalyn. They all have made a significant difference in my life from the day of my first lesson in DAS and until this day.

DAS has been very helpful. I have learnt to read fluently and differentiate ‘d’ and ‘b’. I also learnt to use morphology to help me understand the meanings of words and useful comprehension skills. I feel accomplished and am thankful to all the teachers who have taught me so far.
