While DAS strives to keep our assessment fees affordable for our users, this latest revision is also to enable us to keep pace with the increasing operational costs. For Singaporean families who are in need of financial assistance, bursaries ranging from 33% to 100% will continue to be made available.  In the last financial year, DAS had to raise over $1 million in donations to provide bursaries for needy students requiring non-MOE funded services and programmes.


John is a 14-year-old student. His parents referred him to the DAS as they were concerned with his difficulties in reading and spelling. They and his teachers did not report any other difficulties. An assessment of dyslexia, which costs $900*, is proposed.  John's family applied to DAS for a bursary and based on their family income, were awarded a 50% bursary.  They, therefore, paid only $450* for the assessment.
