At DAS International, we support students with a confirmed diagnosis of a Specific Learning Difference such as Dyslexia, ADHD, Dysgraphia, Maths difficulties etc. Our registered educational psychologists conduct comprehensive psychological assessments for both International and Singaporean residents prior to commencing the Online or Onsite Specialist tutoring. Once completed the final assessment report is shared with the Specialist teacher who will then through an Individual Education Plan (IEP) customize focusing on each student’s weaknesses and gaps in knowledge if any.

An IEP is the Education Plan which the Specialist teacher customises for your child. This is used to define clear SMART targets for the duration of the support given at DAS International with the student. The targets and objectives given will have both long term and short term for your child should be:

  • Specific
  • Manageable
  • Achievable
  • Realistic
  • Timely

The IEP is shared with parents with input from them, after the 2nd session so that there is a clear understanding of the expectation and the targets that are in place for the duration of the block.
