The aim of the SES Speech and Drama Arts Programme is to develop literacy, communication and presentation skills and boost the self-esteem of learners with dyslexia. Drama can be that powerful tool to help students with learning differences.

Our Approach
Using drama activities, students have the opportunity to enhance their persuasiveness and confidence in communication. Students are given the freedom to express themselves freely, using their imagination and creativity. Other vital communication skills that are fostered in the class setting includes listening and concentration. Activities ranging from role-playing to stage performances require students to understand the fundamentals of stage directions, character dialogues, music and light cues. To stage a production necessitates the child to understand and interpret the script, process the script in-depth. This allows them to work on the working memory and processing speed. Class sizes are kept to a maximum of 10 students per class and are conducted once a week in a 1.5 hour session.

The programme consists of four different modules catering to three age groups:

  • Drama, Music and Movement (5-6 years old)
  • Creative Drama Programme (7 - 8 years old)
  • Literacy through Drama Programme (9 - 12 years old)

At the end of each module, parents will be invited to watch the progress of their children. This will also help in giving our students the experience and exposure of performance making. A certificate of participation and progress report will be given to students upon completion of each module.

Recommended for
Students with low self-esteem or low self-confidence, students who have difficulties expressing themselves as well as students who enjoy drama.
