Our Early Intervention Program (EIP) is a customised group intervention progam for children aged 1 to 7, aimed at preparing them for the academic rigour of primary school. EIP is based on the Carolina (US) Curriculum of Assessment and covers all the domains of learning.
Our Vision is to provide personalized learning services for children with special needs and community reefs of support for their families in the developmental journey of their children. We maintain a close relationship with parents and caregivers and equip them with clincal techniques that can be applied and generalised at home, so each child’s learning is not confined to the therapy setting.

The Star depicts their potential. We aim to reach out to these "twinkling stars" and draw out their talents and gifts to help them Shine!
