The Multidisciplinary Team, consisting of a pediatrician, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, speech therapist, special educator, and social worker, will conduct the preliminary evaluation for new referrals. The child will then either be registered for appropriate services at the Association or referred to other facilities or mainstream schools.
The diagnosis of the child will be made by the pediatrician and the areas in which the child needs intervention will be identified. Therapists and special educators will assess the child’s cognitive and functional levels, communication disorders, and eating & drinking difficulties. Based on these, appropriate therapies and an individualized education plan will be recommended for the child.
Upon reaching 19 years of age, based on their abilities, they will be placed either in the Practical Class or Sheltered Workshop. Those who are prepared for open employment will be referred to suitable work settings.
