AWWA Early Intervention Centre provides holistic support for infants and toddlers (birth to 6-years-old) with special needs. Early intervention focuses on helping eligible infants and toddlers learn new skills that typically develop during the first three years of life, from physical, cognitive, communication, social/emotional, and self-help.
An infant’s need for early intervention services may be evident at birth; the child may be born prematurely, or diagnosed at birth with a specific condition. Other children have a relatively routine entry into the world, but may develop more slowly or differently than their peers, or experience significant setbacks during early childhood.
We offer classes and programmes for young children with special needs with an array of services accessible to all in the programme. These may include therapy and counselling services, behaviour management by trained psychologists, and the use of assistive technologies.
- First Challenge – a daily programme for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
- Early Intervention Programme for Infants and Young Children (EIPIC) – children in this programme have other special needs and attend class twice or three times per week.
Early Intervention Programme is supported by a grant from the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) and the National Council of Social Service (NCSS).
