People with dyslexia may face difficulties in learning, but they are distinctive in their strengths and talents too! Did you know that due to lack of understanding of dyslexia, children with this learning difference are often misunderstood, mis-labelled and not given proper attention and support?
Organised by Dyslexia Association of Singapore (DAS), activities at the World Dyslexia Awareness Week (WDAW) aim to help the public understand the challenges brought about by dyslexia – affecting up to one out of 10 people around us.
Take the opportunity to:
