Destiny has been in CPAS EIPIC since July 2021. She initially presented with difficulty communicating her needs and wants, which led to meltdowns and behavioural dysregulation at times.
With the Trans-Disciplinary Approach at CPAS, allied health professionals such as Psychologists, Occupational Therapists and Speech Therapists partner the teaching team to support Destiny's learning and development at EIPIC.
To support her development, Destiny's parents also play very active roles in sharing updates with the team of teachers and therapists at CPAS. They regularly share about their difficulties of managing Destiny, were always proactive in seeking help, and are receptive to suggestions and advice.
With regular classroom observations, case conferences, therapy sessions and parents' participation in class, therapy plans such as social stories to help Destiny understand certain situations were developed to overcome her challenges. Destiny also learnt how to communicate her needs and wants more effectively using Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC).
Destiny has made significant progress and is now able to interact and play with her teachers and peers with the help of visual support.
Your continued support will help CPAS to continue empowering the lives of our children such as Destiny in EIPIC.
Children with cerebral palsy and multiple disabilities need your support.
Established in April 2005, the CPAS Early Intervention Programme for Infants & Children (EIPIC) provides early intervention for children aged 6 years old or below, who are diagnosed with one or more disabilities. EIPIC aims to prepare them for admission into either a Special Education school or a mainstream school.
The curriculum domains covered by EIPIC focus greatly on the children's development, including areas such as fine & gross motor skills and social-communication skills. To maximise the developmental growth of each child, EIPIC provides holistic and individual developmental programmes through the Trans-Disciplinary (Trans-D) Approach for every child. EIPIC also adopts a thematic based syllabus so that the children can learn through holistic, real-life experiences.
Your continued support makes it possible for CPAS to continue sustaining essential programmes such as EIPIC for our clients with cerebral palsy and multiple disabilities. Join us as we work together to empower the lives of our children in EIPIC.
