Early Intervention Programme for Special Children

Just sharing this info regarding this beneficial talk for parents who have children with special needs. After almost 6months sending Emran here at WQ Park Rehab Centre, there is not just a rehab centre. Its more than love I can see, more than everything you have..and now I have to wipe my tears to finish this entry.

For many years, education for children with special needs has been a concern for many parents and caregivers. Although this concern is widely expressed, some parents are still unfamiliar with the process or unaware of the importance of early intervention and its benefits for children with special needs.

So this talk will focus on the importance of early intervention programmes conducted for children including some of the areas /needs addressed and on how parents can deal with other co-existing concerns such as medical, behavioral, developmental, learning, and mental health. And also discuss on issues and options of sending the child to kindergarten or school.

For parents who interested do contact Ms Kody or Ms Norien at 03-7804 4171/8171 ext 131 or email to for any enquiries.
