COURSE OBJECTIVES

 

This course aims to introduce participants to a broad overview of Dyslexia, a specific learning difficulty. The incidence of dyslexia in Singapore falls within the international incidence of 3% to 10% of the population. Hence this course provides a useful foundation to understand more about the nature of dyslexia, how it is assessed and how learners can be helped and supported on the DAS programme as well as in school and at home. It is hoped that this course will interest participants to pursue professional teaching courses with the DAS Academy.
