Welcome to Speech and Language Therapy in DAS


Children with dyslexia and other specific learning differences often have associated speech, language and communication difficulties. These include delayed speech and language development, imprecise articulation and social communication difficulties. Speech and Language Therapy (SLT) was introduced to complement the MOE-Aided DAS Literacy Programme (MAP) at DAS. Individual assessment of students and intervention at individual and group levels is available in DAS. This workshop will present case studies of some SLT students as well as give our participants a peek into a therapy experience through fun hands-on activities.

Pre-Conference Session


Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum..
