Don’t forget children with mild special education needs

The Dyslexia Association of Singapore (DAS) is encouraged by the wide-ranging discussions about key principles of Singapore’s education system in recent parliamentary sessions (Move beyond focus on grades to embrace skills: Ong Ye Kung; July 12).

It is gratifying to note that the highest level of resourcing goes towards specialised schools (Parliament: Four specialised schools receive more resources to support special needs students; July 10).

However, it is important to include in the discussions the needs of children with learning differences (including dyslexia) and who have mild special education needs.
