The Register of Educational Therapists (Asia) encourages research and for her members to read widely as part of continuing professional development and to keep current with developments in the field of Specific Learning Differences and Education.

To support this effort, we have obtained permission from the Dyslexia Association of Singapore to link the DAS published research journal, the Asia Pacific Journal of Developmental Differences [APJDD], which is edited by world renowned academic and researcher Emeritus Professor Angela Fawcett, to our website. This will enable RETA members to have easy access to a valuable collection of published research papers, many of which have a Singaporean or regional perspective. There is also a direct link to the annual DAS Handbook, which also has excellent articles on DAS programmes alongside contributions from international authors.

In order to build a network of knowledgeable professionals that support one another, RETA encourages her members to recommend other research links or to contribute research papers and professional writings of their own.
