Early Intervention Program

KTLC’s Early Intervention Program aims to maximize the developmental growth of each child by providing total and individual developmental programs for the child.

KTLC’s Early Intervention Program uses Structured Teaching
Structured Teaching is an intervention philosophy developed by Eric Schopler et al at Division TEACCH (Treatment and Education of Autistic and other related Communication Handicapped Children)
Benefits of Structured Teaching:
1. Utilizes the child’s strength in visual skills to help focus on relevant and meaningful information in the environment.
2. Adapts the environment to make it more orderly and predictable.
3. Focuses on the development of independent skills, it increase independence and decrease behavior problems. 4. Allows us to limit the need for verbal language to mediate meaning in a learning situation.

EIP’s Program and Curriculum
Assessment, Evaluation and Programming System (AEPS) is the main curriculum. Staff and therapists are given training on this system to better equip them for the benefit of the children.
What is AEPS and what are the benefits?
AEPS had been implemented and used in America and was introduced to Singapore in 2006 with the endorsement of the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports (MCYS), as well as the National Council of Social Services (NCSS).
AEPS is a linked system that requires greater interaction amongst therapists, early interventionists, social workers and parents. This joint interaction, with follow-up meetings on the progress of the child, ensures that the child in EIP receives a programme that is tailored to his or her special needs and is completely child-centered, catering to the child concerned.
AEPS holistically attends to the child’s full development, taking into consideration the child’s physical, social and cognitive aspects in relation to the environment, which includes the important home environment. This system addresses the overall development of the child, giving specific attention and support to the special needs of each child.
