Our Early Intervention Programmes (EIP)

Early intervention is to identify and provide effective early support to children who are at risk of developmental delays. Effective early intervention works to equip them with improved motor, communication, social, self-help and cognitive skills. Every Bright Path child has an individualised curriculum tailored to their needs. We use TEACCH: a structured, yet flexible teaching program. It is a visual teaching method suitable for children of all ages and developmental levels. The highly visual approach help make the environment more comprehensible and can be replicated beyond the school environment. Even in a group class setting, your child will receive individualised learning based on their specific needs.

At Bright Path, we have these specialists that work closely with our educators to provide the ideal teaching techniques to help all our child learn and develop.
