If you look at me now, you will have never guess that I was diagnose with ADHD, Dyslexia and mild autism at age 9.
Why is that so? I am thankful to both my mum who manage to get me into DAS and the teacher who thought me at DAS.
During my time there, I learned that when with such disabilities for life, I can also lead a normal and fulfilling life with the skillset which i have been taught by and learned from my DAS teacher.
Many people will misunderstand that children with Dyslexia maybe deem unteachable and other negative area. But that's not the case, each child with Dyslexia are weak at some area and strong in other areas.
For example, I am weak with my language but strong in my mathematics and during exam, I require additional time to take my exam during my PSLE, N & O levels. With hopes help giving, I even manage to get into Uni and got my degree and currently doing my part for the society.
From this fundraising I hope that it will create more awareness that so long as the child is given a chance and taught with love and proper guidance, they can blossom into a fine lady or man and contribute back to the society without you knowing that they actually have dyslexia.
About The Charity
Children suffering from dyslexia are often misunderstood, mislabeled and deprived of the proper attention and support. The DAS aims to provide the expertise to assess and help dyslexic students keep up with their peers in school. In Singapore, about 23,000 children in the age range of 6 to 16 require specialist intervention.Donors help reduce DAS' annual operating deficits and help fund dyslexic children who need financial assistance in overcoming their learning differences. Each donation received will go towards the most pressing need at the moment.With funding from donors, we will definitely be able to maximise our resources to reach out extensively to more dyslexic students.
