The Centres adopt the Robert Dellar’s Curriculum, an Early Intervention Programme ( EIP ) as its teaching guide.
What is early Intervention?
The term intervention is use to cover physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and special educational help.
‘Intervention’ has replaced the term ‘therapy’ and treatment’ to emphasize that it is a help rather than a cure.
Early intervention is given shortly after birth until school starts.
What we do in Kiwanis Down Syndrome Foundation
There are many types of early intervention such as home based, centre based or nursery-school based. In KDSF, centre based intervention is provided. It gives parents a change of routine and a chance to meet other parents. More special children will benefit from the services provided.
Parents are also able to utilize toys from the toy library.
