Learning Differences: Understanding Dyslexia

Dyslexia affects 20,000 primary and secondary school students in Singapore. Problems in learning to read and/or spell could be signs of this learning difference. This applies when a child’s overall progress seems at odds with his/her general ability level.

This talk will be conducted by a speaker from the Dyslexia Association of Singapore (DAS), a non-profit organisation that works closely with the Ministry of Education to provide support for students aged 6 to 16 who have dyslexia. At the talk, you will find out more about how dyslexia affects a child’s literacy development, and how parents and educators can work together with the child to overcome this challenge.

Date: 27 February 2016 (Sat)
Time: 2.30pm to 4pm
Venue: Programme Zone, Clementi Public Library

Admission is free for one seat, but registration is required. Please register at eKiosks or at http://www.nlb.gov.sg/golibrary/.
