New Centre A short walk from Yishun MRT is the Yishun Learning Centre of the Dyslexia Association of Singapore. Opened in October, it has eight classrooms equipped with wireless projectors and dimmable lights to cater to students with specific light brightness level needs. While the former centre could only support 155 students, the new centre accommodates up to 300 students with dyslexia and specific learning differences residing in Yishun and the vicinity. It’ll also ensure that students continue to be supported by bursaries. This effort is boosted by the donation of $99,300 by the Singapore Island Country Club that will go towards the DAS Bursary Fund. DAS needs to raise over $2 million for its bursary fund every year. The construction of the new centre is also made possible with the support of the Lee Foundation.
