Learning Support, please help

(Ruth)Hi,We are moving from Singapore in 2 weeks to Jakarta. We are using Santa Fe to pack and move us, so I dare say I may meet you along the line. My elder son has very slight dsylexia. Is there any place for extra learning support in Jakarta. He presently goes to a brilliant place here in Singapore. They told me I would have to fly back to singapore for help. I don’t believe this to be true. The school that he and his brother will go too: does have learning support, which I hope will help. My husband and I have driven past a place called Jolly Phonic s in Kemang. However when I google it I could find nothing!
