Who We Teach

The Dyslexia Association of Singapore helps students who are:

We also help adults who struggle with literacy.

LITERACY REMEDIATION

DAS offers programmes to support children from preschool to secondary school.  Our Main Literacy Programme (MLP) provides a comprehensive and quality curriculum to support students with dyslexia facing literacy challenges.  The literacy programme integrates key essential learning components that are crucial in remediating students with learning differences.

PRESCHOOL

Our preschool programme is offered to children in K1 and K2 and is designed to provide individual attention to young learners who are struggling with early literacy.  The programme is structured, cumulative and sequential that is multi-sensory.

Our Main Literacy Programme (MLP) is designed for the dyslexic learner.  MOE funds this programme and in the 2015 audit stated, “Services offered under MOE-aided DAS Literacy Programme* are appropriate, and remain highly relevant in providing additional literacy support for students with dyslexia”. 

DAS provides support for SECONDARY SCHOOL students under our main literacy programme and is highly relevant to their academic achievement.  The main literacy programme is comprehensive and detailed so support students with literacy needs till Secondary 5.  Increasingly DAS, will endeavour to support secondary students under our other programmes.  To find out more about the programme click here

These areas may include (depending on their needs) teaching them strategies on how to manage writing at the tertiary level or teaching them study skills strategies to make them more effective learners.
