Initiatives and programmes include:Integration Programme
- An integration programme to bridge the gap between the Early Intervention Programme and mainstream preschools, it offers students with different childhood disabilities the opportunity to participate in regular education preschool experiences alongside typically developing children.
- The interventionist visits the student’s preschool to facilitate the child’s participation in the classroom. Support may include provisions of various prompts, or the implementation of specific skills acquisition programmes and motivation systems aimed at promoting a student’s independence and responsiveness to new teachers or peers. Regular meetings with preschool teachers and parents are held to ensure that all parties are working on similar goals and expectations.
- A special education trained Music instructor is employed to conduct Music and Movement Classes for all EIPIC students. Students will be exposed to various forms of music, instruments, movement and rhythm to facilitate the learning potential through Music.
- This programme plays an important role in enhancing emotional well-being of children with special needs by developing healthy interpersonal social skills in unstructured situations.
