Suitable for: Children with learning disorders or developmental delays who require 1-1 setting due to the severity of their learning disorders, medical conditions or behavioural issues. Programme description: A movement programme designed to improve the child‛s learning and functioning by addressing the underlying neuro-developmental delay. This programme is based on the Neuro Physiological Psychology (INPP) Method which has 45 years of research, expertise and practice in helping children to resolve physical factors that cause learning and behavioural problems. An assessment to evaluate the child’s neuro-motor maturity (which includes the functioning of balance, primitive reflexes and visual skills) will be conducted at the start of the programme. Through this assessment and analysis of the child, developmental movement exercises are devised for the child to carry out daily at home with parental involvement. Sessions: 7 sessions to be conducted at two-months interval for parent and child in a one-to-one setting. This programme takes about a year to complete and is conducted by our principal educational therapist.




Consultation


For their children‛s learning and behavioural difficulties, we give parents a holistic assessment, identification of underlying potential factors and recommendation of practical remediation actions. We use effective and recognized methods from several fields – education, neurodevelopment, nutritional therapy, psychology - by taking an interdisciplinary approach. This is conducted by our Principal Educational Therapist.




Psychological Assessment


Conducted by educational psychologists, we provide diagnostic assessment using clinically proven tests and assessment tools for children with learning, behavioural, and developmental issues, such as ADHD, dyslexia, and autism. We also provide assessment on school readiness for entry into primary one in a mainstream primary school. The psychologist will provide a comprehensive report and will give recommendations of how to better help children cope with the school demands and where appropriate, recommendations of access arrangements from MOE to enable them to perform at their fullest potential during national examinations.
