Dyslexia

Dyslexia is a developmental condition that affects language comprehension and cognition. The severity of dyslexia can range from mild to severe. Children with dyslexia often have difficulty reading, spelling, writing, sequencing, and even telling of time. They tend to find detecting and manipulating sounds challenging, which results in a weaker link between phonemes and their written form. This programme focuses on improving the literacy difficulties faced by children at risk of dyslexia which targets reading, spelling, writing and sequencing.

Reading is one of the main fundamentals upon which a child’s learning and functional life skills are built. When children can understand the underlying meaning behind the written word, their cognitive development and language acquisition ability are enhanced. 

However, the obstacles faced by children with reading difficulties can diminish their interest in reading which may affect their learning in other aspects. With proper guidance, children can overcome their reading difficulties, allowing their initial investment to blossom into a life-long passion for reading.

Our Dyslexia Programme individualises the intervention by focusing on the child’s areas of difficulty arising during the child’s learning process.
