Hi Parents!

We are from Thrive Psychology Clinic at Royal Square @ Novena (Medical Suites), and this December, we would be conducting a special 12-week Chinese foundation programme, catered specially for Beginner, Primary 1 and Primary 2 Mandarin-speaking children with Dyslexia!

About 4-10% of our school-going children have dyslexia, and it is essential that we support them in their learning. However, being dyslexic in one language does not necessarily make you dyslexic in another, and here at Thrive Psychology, we recognise that there is a need to help children with Dyslexia to better prepare in learning the Chinese language.

Our programme would be conducted weekly, starting from the 1st week of December, and will be using concepts from Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) and Psychological Concepts, through a series of multi-sensory activities and interactive learning games, to cultivate interest and promote learning in the language for your child!

Give us a call at 6962 9753 or drop us an email at info@thrivepsychology.com.sg for more information.

We would also be conducting many more workshops and programmes during the December holidays, so do ‘Like’ our Facebook Page (Thrive Psychology Clinic) for more updates! ☺

Hi all, any recommendations for organisations/specialist tutors who can teach Chinese to teenagers with Dyslexia who are weak in Mandarin? I understand DAS runs Chinese programmes, but they only accept Primary school students. Child is in Secondary school but has Primary level Chinese. Help!

Happy chinese new year , i thought would return to the forum that gave me so much support . thank you KSP. Last year, 2018 my son took his N level (NA) exam . miraculously he managed to just scrap through to qualify for secondary 5 but he has decided to go to poly instead. my husband and I were hoping he would give sec 5 a shot but we want him to make his own decision. we pray that he will continue to cope in his studies.
My son was always always a very timid and suffered from poor confidence. he was very negative and gave up easily right from kindergarten . he dare not try anything.My husband and I were so frustrated. it pained us to see him like this. struggling and suffering, the school teachers even advised us to enroll him in a special school. we were really at a wits end. any way some years ago as were were surfing through one of the forums ( i can remember if its ksp or motherhood we came across a testimony from one of the mommies about their tutor. Mr PK. he really did a good job by not giving up and building up his confidence. he would always say" give it a try, nothing will happen" slowly my child grades improved. my child never reach the heights of academic excellence but at least he was scoring respectable marks. to cut the story short Mr PK prodded him along until he finally made it to sec 4 NA. it was a arduous journey and I thank Mr PK. so now i am trying to contact this kiasu mommy to thank her. i lost her email. I am not sure but I think her username or email is 4gladmom@gmail.com or gladmum@gmail.com or something like that. if you are out there reading this post pls email me at masietayzz@gmail.com so I can catch up with you and thank you. i might try looking at the other forum or threads
Hi, can I have Mr PK number as I need a good tutor for my dyslexia daughter. You can send to my email add strawberrimilkshake@hotmail.com.TIA

Aside from enrolling our child in a tuition center, what can we do to improve our child's performance in school? Mine is already P4 and diagnosed with dyslexia since P1 and he is really struggling with his studies.

I would advise getting intervention, e.g. through the DAS. A good therapist should be able to spot what your boy's underlying weaknesses are and patch those gaps.
