After school remediation has been one of the earliest activities of MDA. In 1992 when children were identified as having a specific learning difficulty or dyslexia and teachers were trained to teach these children, for the first time children were offered after school remedial help . This after school remedial help has been beneficial to children who have a mild to moderate difficulty. Many children benefited from this support and have gone on to finish their schooling successfully.
The advantage of an after school remedial programme is that the child gets the intervention alongside his schooling.
A dedicated group of teachers has taken this service through, over the years. With patience and a keen eye to observe and plan, the remedial teacher motivates and builds skills.
Every year several children are enrolled in the programme and are helped with skill building and are successfully remediated.
Younger children receive intervention in basic skills. Older children additionally need study skills training as well to make them independent learners.
Children with dyslexia are stronger than we know, they fight the battles that most will never know.
