Hi everyone,

My son was assessed to have dyslexia very recently + dysgraphia. He also has some attention deficit symptoms with poor working memory. I'm exploring the possibility of taking him out of the MOE system to an international school that will focus more on creativity and other aspects of development (while also obviously teaching the academic stuff). Of course, I know MOE's stance that all SG kids must go to a local school.

Has anyone tried this route - asking MOE for an exemption on such grounds? How did that go? Would love to hear your experiences of coping in the local system too.

Many thanks!!

Hi all, my son has been suspected for having Dyslexia and ADHD at p2..

Any recomendation for him to get a check up?

I have when to poly clinic to get a referral but the child development clinic rejected us telling is that only school can refer.

It was the teacher that told me to bring him see a doctor.

Any clinic or doctors any parents here can advise? Some clinic charging 2k to 3k for the assessment any cheaper option?

Thanks

I would suggest giving the Dyslexia Association of Singapore a call to ask them about their psychological assessment services. Another option is The Gifted Lab whom I'm working closely with. Their rates are reasonable and they have a short waiting time (let them know you're referred by Swords & Stationery for an additional discount).

Hope this helps!
