Amenities
  • First one-stop centre for assessment, facilities, and intervention services for a wide spectrum of learning difficulties (lds) and Learning Disabilities (LDs)
  • Leading and most comprehensive institution in Singapore based on the range of intervention programmes
  • Partner of Thomson Pediatric Centre who procure our intervention expertise to complement their medical, therapeutic and psychological services

Intervention Approach

  • Practical and Effective
  • Current teaching methodology that is used in many developed countries
  • Conventional Categorical/Label-focused/Testing-Centric assessment and intervention
  • Assessment is pigeonholed to specific LDs (e.g. ASD, Dyslexia, ADD/ADHD etc).
  • Misses out on the needs, difficulties and characteristics of lds or LDs that falls outside of these labels/categories
  • Insufficient evidence and co-morbidities of these outlying LDs make formal diagnosis impossible.
  • Efficacy is sacrificed when traditional methodologies intended for classic labels are used for co-morbidity cases
