Hi everyone,

I wanted to create a forum thread that provided information on official helplines, workshops or informative events that parents of special needs kids can attend or use - to provide the right kind of support for their child as well as to learn how to cope effectively.

This thread is primarily for parents who are expecting or have special needs kids (children with Childhood Developmental Delays, Learning Challenges, Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, Speech and Language Delays, etc).

Please use this thread to share about RELEVANT events/ information sessions! Thank you:)

To get the ball rolling,

I recently came across this event on Facebook that may interest some of you: https://bit.ly/2K4NAGd

It is a Health Talk to be held on 14th July 2018, titled:

Special Needs Kids? Early Intervention is Key. Act Now before it is too late!

Short Description:
What a pleasure to witness the growth of our cherished children and watch them blossom and shine. However, as symptoms of developmental disorders could be noticed, worry steps in: When to intervene? How to react? What to do?

Ms. Tricia Tam
, a psychologist who has served in the field of Early Childhood Education since 2004, and Ms. Regina Phang, a principal occupational therapist, will share with you deeper insights on the importance of an early intervention in preventing the long-term effects of developmental delays. They will also show how you can give a hand to your child with developmental delays, learning challenges, or other conditions such as autism, ADHD, dyslexia, speech and language delays.

Dear mummies,

Big news from the U.S. for those who would are struggling with understanding the behaviours of their children with special needs, and how to manage them, and teach their children.

The Autism Partnership Foundation, a U.S. based and world-leading service provider (they have an office here in Singapore) for individuals with ASD and related disorders has launched a FREE 40 hour training in Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) for anyone interested. ABA is the gold standard treatment approach for ASD and related disorders, with a strong evidence base for its effectiveness.

This 40 hour training covers the task list of a Registered Behaviour Technician, a professional certification in ABA issued by the Behaviour Analyst Certification Board (BACB). This is the level of training that qualifies one to be a front line staff working with individuals with ASD and related disorders. You read that right. And it's free.
*Note that the 40 hour training is only one component to apply for certification.*

Note that you would need to register an account with the BACB beforehand as you will need to produce your BACB ID to sign up for the course. The account is free to register and takes less than 5 mins.

I am unable to post links as I'm a new member here. You can PM me for the links.

I hope that this is welcome news for some of you mummies out there. Cheers!
Hi Parents, if your child has a natural love for music and you would like to help him/her to:
- increase focus and attention skills
- improve memory retention
- encourage speech and communication through music
- strengthen hand-eye coordination
- foster a love for learning

Consider signing up for our piano lessons where we use music as an educational therapy to help your child achieve these objectives.

We understand that every special needs child is different. Thus our music curriculum is customised to suit each child's needs after the initial assessment. Our certified piano teacher, armed with a truckload of patience and years of experience, will guide the child to meet the learning objectives and developmental goals.

Register for a trial class today by sending us a message via WhatsApp at 80230602. Feel free also to reach out to us if you have any questions!

Looking for a professional to support your child who has special needs or delayed in some domains such as writing skills, reading area?????

In Singapore, children who diagnosed with different disorders has been increased significantly recently. Most of the parents will send their child who has special needs to Early Intervention Centre (EIPIC) after received the diagnosis from the psychologist.
