Early Intervention Programme for Infants & Children
The CPAS Early Intervention Programme for Infants & Children (EIPIC) provides early intervention for children with one or more disabilities, and prepares them for admission into either a Special Education school or mainstream school. The programme was established on 1 April 2005.
Curriculum domains covered by the programme include:
- Cognitive skills
- Adaptive skills
- Social skills
- Fine & Gross motor skills
- Social-communication skills
- To maximise the developmental growth of each child by providing holistic and individual developmental programmes for children 6 years old or below, diagnosed with one or more disabilities
- To provide family-centred support and training for the child
- To provide rehabilitative, therapeutic and supportive services
- To provide integration support to mainstream preschool
A Trans-Disciplinary (Trans-D) Approach is integrated into the curriculum, where a multi-disciplinary team consisting of EIPIC Interventionist, Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist, Speech and Language Pathologist, Social Worker, Psychologist and parents/caregivers collaborate to provide holistic education and support to help the child maximise his or her developmental growth.
