Is your child learning in school?

Choosing the right school or program that is best suited for a child can be a tough decision.

 

Parents want a school that helps their child grow and reach their fullest potential.

 

It’s normal for parents to enroll their child with autism into a mainstream preschool because they want their child to socialise with typical children – while hoping that he/she will be able to learn from other students and teachers. 

 

However, while the intention is good, sometimes parents may notice that their child isn’t making much progress from school.

 

They may feel that they’re constantly playing catch-up for their child. 

 ​

Children with autism experience developmental delays in attending, regulation, speech, language, numeracy, literacy, social skills etc. 

 

The thing is, they may not necessarily assimilate into school immediately and know how to learn in a big class with other children.​

 

Neither may teachers in a mainstream preschool have experience in teaching and handling children with autism...

 

nor might they have the capacity to give them special attention in a class with over 20 children.

More often than not, children with extra needs are neglected.

 

Their valuable time is wasted without receiving the support they need.

And they are not learning

This is why we offer our School Readiness Program.

 

It is a program,

  • designed for children with autism,

  • provides the attention that your child deserves, and

  • where your child can learn effectively.

What is school readiness?

School readiness means that a child is able to learn in a group environment.

 

Often, children start with 1-on-1 instruction, where they have full access to an attentive adult to provide instruction and teach important skills, with high quality attention and support.

 

Although this is a great start for many children, it is not a sustainable teaching model.

The purpose of our School Readiness Program is to help bridge the gap between 1-on-1 instruction and group learning environments e.g. childcare or school.

Through our school readiness program, we can help your child to cope with the intensity of school and teach them important life skills to carry with them as they grow up.
