Re: All About Autism

Fantastic initiative! Glad the kids got the chance to experience this :). Toys R Us typically isn't the best place for kids on the spectrum to go to, especially during peak hours.

Re: Do tuition centres still continue to run P6 class afterP

The tuition centre that I operate stops immediate once that paper is over. Usually, I recommend parents to let their kids rest a little first and engage them in non-academic pursuits.

Re: All About ADHD : Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorde

I'd say it's independent of whether one has ADHD or not. If the interest is there, they can learn it. I have a close relative with ADHD, and he's learned to play the ukelele and violin because of his interest in music.
