On-site Teaching Provides Specialist Intervention Service to Schools or Organisations at their locations.


Some but not all children have a diagnosis for specific learning differences. However, their symptoms and difficulties in learning are similar to a typical child with learning differences. Many children struggle to cope with academic requirements and need specialised intervention. With established strategies and experience, DAS Educational Therapists and Speech & Language Therapists can provide specialist intervention for children with various specific learning differences.

Onsite programmes in schools aim to uncover the true strengths of students with learning differences and empower them with the necessary skills and strategies to succeed.

Over the past 3 years the DAS has been actively providing schools with our Onsite Programmes On-site Teaching is a specialist intervention service for MOE or International schools.
