Siti Aishah has been with the DAS since 2010. She provides small group intervention for learners with dyslexia on the Main Literacy Programme and DAS Maths programme. In addition, she is part of the maths core team which develops the curriculum and provides teacher training and support to the Math teachers. She has also conducted talks and workshops for students, parents and educators, locally and internationally.

Siti Aishah has a deep interest in specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia and impairment in mathematics. She aims to instil a love of learning in spite of the challenges these children face. The first hurdle to learning is usually a lack of motivation and confidence. She is passionate about reaching out to children through ways that they learn best. Her works include research on the maths programme in DAS as well as mathematical comprehension and problem-solving skills.
