Summer Camp (27 June – 8 August 2015)

D.T is also in the process of setting up a summer camp in Kanchanaburi, Thailand, where the children can enjoy all the fun expected of summer camp as well as an hour of literacy intervention by the OG tutors per day. The camp also aims to raise self-esteem and confidence in learning. We are hoping to have this ready for the upcoming summer break. More news to come…

Our mission is to increase awareness of dyslexia in South East Asia where 10 – 20% of all school populations will have students struggling to reach international standards in literacy and/or math. By increasing awareness and training we hope to develop the quality of teaching and intervention that these children receive, to reach their educational potential.
