Touch Child care — one of its key features …. Integrate children with mild special needs into mainstream primary schools.

Comforting to know there is early intervention efforts that are ongoing!

At TOUCH Child Care*, we strongly believe that parents and educators play a big part in shaping the lives of the next generation. For this reason, we aim to provide a safe and secure environment for children to learn and develop lifeskills.

TOUCH Child Care centres adopt the THRASS (Teaching Handwriting, Reading and Spelling Scheme) approach, which seeks to increase children’s literacy skills by focusing on phonics and spelling. To further promote the flexibility of mind in children, we also employ mediation techniques to enhance their cognitive skills and improve the quality of both teacher-child and parent-child interaction.

“All teachers and staff at TOUCH Child Care have always been very approachable and supportive of Charlotte’s educational and personal needs. Martin and I have always been very impressed with the professionalism shown by TOUCH. Being greeted with friendly and cheerful faces every morning have made us feel so comfortable and at ease leaving our precious child in your good hands.”
– Ms Theresa Tan, parent of student, Charlotte Chan

Yes not to worry! Currently, all mainstream pri and sec schools are staffed with at least 1 allied educator for behavioural and learning support as an initiative that was rolled out by MOE in 2005. They help to support students with mild special needs such as dyslexia, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Besides, all schools have a core group of teachers that are trained to handle students with mild special needs.

It’s a great way to encourage these kids that they are important and part of the future society as well!
