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

Some but not all children may 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. With established strategies and experience, DAS Educational Therapists and Specialist Teachers can provide support for children who may be struggling.

Onsite programmes in schools aim to uncover the true strengths of students with or without learning differences and empower them with the necessary skills and strategies to succeed.

Over the past 4 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.

Secondary 1NT Maths

The Secondary 1 Normal Technical Maths (Sec 1NT) programme is designed specifically for Secondary 1 students taking the Normal Technical Maths syllabus to support them in their transition to secondary school mathematics. This programme aims to help students acquire the concepts, mathematical vocabulary and skills covered in the MOE Secondary 1 Normal Technical Maths syllabus. While this programme is curriculum based, ensuring that the students with learning needs understand the concepts in the way they learn best is still the focus of the remediation. Students will be able to relate to abstract mathematical concepts better using concrete experiences and real-life application. With dyslexia-friendly approaches, our targeted support will help in building their confidence and promote their readiness, engagement and mastery in the topics that are usually covered in the first year of school.

The curriculum is designed such that students will be learning a fixed set of topics in each term. Each block provides ten hours of curriculum-based lessons, which includes pre and post-tests. Interested schools or organizations can choose the topics that their students are weak in or need extra support. Based on topics of interest, we will advise further on the educational proposal, which includes the programme plan and a set of pre and post-tests.

An educational therapist will then be matched to conduct the lessons in the school/organisation.

SES Speech and Drama Arts Programme

The Speech and Drama Arts programme provides children with SpLDs a safe platform to learn to express themselves, experience teamwork and develop their confidence. Understanding the background and characteristics of these students has allowed us to develop a programme that would enhance their learning journey and discover their potential.

Our Approach:

The aim of the SES Speech and Drama Arts Programme is to develop literacy, communication and presentation skills and boost the self-esteem of learners with dyslexia. Drama can be a powerful tool to help students with learning differences to experience language learning in a fun way.

Drama Workshops for Schools:

At the DAS, we conduct SES Speech and Drama workshops for students both in primary and secondary schools. Our school workshops are customised to meet the demands of our clients, in order to achieve the school’s desired objectives and outcomes.

Our Instructors:

  • Trained educational therapists to support students
    with dyslexia.
