Service Objectives  

  • Special Child Care Centre Service: to provide centre-based intensive training and care for moderately and severely disabled pre-school children with an aim to assist them in their development and growth. A good foundation is laid for them to get prepared for primary education.

Scopes of Service 

  • Early Education & Training Centre Service: each child is assessed periodically for their development. Results of the assessment will be used to plan an individualised training programme which sets learning goals for the parent and child. Parents and children have individual or group training/treatment at least once per week followed by practice in their daily life. Toys are available for borrowing so that parents can perform training at home. Training on education activities is provided for parents to raise the acceptance of their children as well as knowledge and skills in the areas of child language and language development. An all-round development is therefore achieved. Speech Therapy, Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy can be arranged on a need basis.

  • Special Child Care Centre Service: developmental assessment and individualised educational programme are conducted periodically. The results of the developmental assessment are used to plan an individualised training programme which sets learning goals for each child.

Speech Therapy, Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy are available for children.
