With an estimated one in ten individuals in any society having dyslexia, there could be almost 540,000 individuals with varying levels of dyslexia in Singapore. Dyslexia Association of Singapore (DAS) will be embarking on a new campaign – Embrace Dyslexia. The campaign seeks to debunk common misconceptions about dyslexia, encourage dyslexic people to embrace their learning differences and to call organisations to take greater action in helping dyslexics by working with DAS.
The campaign commences with a seminar and a dinner with Thomas West, a world-renowned author of influential books on dyslexia as well as a series of outreach activities such as the Hugs drive on Facebook which aims to increase awareness of DAS. The Embrace Dyslexia campaign will be launched officially on 19th November 2014 with a dinner with Thomas West at Traders Hotel, followed by the Seminar which will be held on 20th November 2014 at NTUC Auditorium.
