Lessons are taught in accordance with the Orton-Gillingham principles:
“Services offered under MOE-aided das Literacy Programme* are appropriate, and remain highly relevant in providing additional literacy support for students with dyslexia” – MOE 2015 Audit
* The MOE-aided das Literacy Programme is now known as the das Main Literacy Programme (MLP).
das Programmes are evaluated and published in the das Handbook. To read these reports click here.
das believes that no child should be left behind because he or she cannot afford the cost of a das education. The provision of bursaries is critical as it levels the playing field for children with dyslexia from lower families. das and MOE provide financial assistance in the form of bursaries to Singapore students, or to students who have at least one parent who is a Singaporean.
The student must also be attending a MOE mainstream school between Primary One (1) and Secondary Five (5).
