Options for Kids with Special Needs

Postby newyorkmom » Tue, 29 Mar 2011 4:59 am

Hi all,

We are relocating to Singapore in June. My son is 3.5 yo and is a bit delayed (sensory processing, behavioral). What are the school options available? Looking for a cosy preschool with high teacher-student ratio.

The Hanen It takes two to talk course will help parents to skill themselves to teach their children with global delay at home.

Hi, there is a great place called Stars DC that takes kids from 6 years onwards, they offer full schooling and support with a 3 to 1 teacher kid ratio. As your child is too young for that, then somewhere called Kaleidoscope would be good for him I think? hope that helps!

Please, do not mislead people. It Takes Two To Talk is great program, but it is not meant to train parents in homeschooling. It is program for parents of children with speech delays and it teaches them to use everyday situations to promote child's speech and language development.

newyorkmom, I guess you are already in Singapore, did you find something suitable?

I'm sorry I cannot recomment anything for that age group but if u r staying in Singapore long enough, perhaps Chao Yang primary school? I hav done some volunteer there and I think the environment is nice. I did nt check out their student ratio though, perhaps u may contact them when th time comes.

In the mean time, mayb u can contact MINDS, they used to hav a school across where I live and I think they are a general help group.

I hope this helps!

All the best in finding suitable place(s) for your child.
