This is a discussion on Therapy at Special Schools- Cost & Subsidies within the Parenting Special Needs Child forum, part of the MummySG Special Group category; Hi mummies, I just called SPD and was told the once a week EIPIC cost $500++ a month and twice ...
I just called SPD and was told the once a week EIPIC cost $500++ a month and twice a week program is $900+++
The threshold for subsidy is $1.5k per capita.. which is very low .. how to survive with a special needs child if this is the case?
Can anyone share with me how this works? Did you all get subsidy?
The amount is exclusive of transport. My goodness!
SPD= Society for Physically Disabled.
Called them becos they are nearest to my home, then realised they are not govt subsidised.
Inclusive of therapies, how much are the fees at Rainbow? It's very far from my home but can definitely use as a gauge.
You should contact DIRC (or something like that) it's a disability referral centre under MCYS..what happen for us was our doctor at nuh referred us.
And a social worker contacted us and interviewed, asking for info like income etc..they will then enroll you in a govt funded school with eipic..we chose awwa as near our home.. chloe is going 3 times a week classes with weekly PT/OT sessions & multisensory class.. as for fees..they charge accordingly to income level..MEANS testing..we have classmates paying 30-100 a month etc..so it's a very fair system
Please check it out cos early intervention did wonders for my chloe..
MYCS website with press release of DIRC's role as follow:
You should ring MCYS up and enquire...

Our angel is the one perfect in our eyes, everybody else is the imperfect ones, full of sin, hatred, envy, jealousy and all that which comes with being a mammal.
I finally got the referral from Kandang Kerbau Hospital. The MSW is now processing the paper work to be submitted to CEL.
Next week, we are going to visit a neuro surgeon to get a second opinion on her condition and explore if stem cell transplant is potential option for her. fyi, my gal has yet to show any response ... not crying, not swallowing and in slumber each day.
good to hear that your papers are in process, do let us know on your journey with stem cell treatment, we've actually toyed with that idea on overseas stem cell treatments..but they all seem too good to be true and based on a web site it's too scary..anyway stay strong cos our daughter was just as bad in her early days..her eyes kept slanting towards top left or top right..but now at 4 she can focus!
