Centre for Child
Development &
Early Intervention

The Centre provides both individualised and group based early interventions for children with special needs. Using TEACCH (Treatment and Education of Autistic and Communication related Children) technique, an evident-based approach developed by The University of North Carolina, the centre aims to uncover each child’s strength and work towards achieving daily-skills, academic and social successes.

With a small teacher to children ratio, the centre also provides transition/ school readiness programme in which we aim to prepare the child for transition from SPED to mainstream schools. Our staff are also trained to use techniques employed in Handwriting Without Tears, an effective programme to help children with special needs to develop good handwriting skills.

At Nurture Pods, our staff go through regular trainings and supervisions to ensure quality of interventions administered. Our goal is to help every child develop into an individual with all-rounded abilities, who is able to live independently and have a good quality of life.
