Dear Parents,
I am glad to find this group chat. My girl have GDD and attending Rainbow EIPIC for 9 month. The teacher suggest we add on childcare so that she have can have more time mingle with kids (only child at home). I have visited a few childcare centre, but get instance reject even I told them mild delay. Does any parents come across any CC that around Punggol or sembawang area that accept GDD kids.
Or other than Childcare, is there any other option on daily basis (school - longer duration) to help her improve. EIPIC 2 hours program seem too short. I did explore ICCP, but heard long waiting lists.

Pls continue to find CC / preschool / playgroup for your child. Don't be discourage. usually the presch/CC will assess the child to see if they can cope in term of safety (if child not yet/unstable in walking) and ratio as well. some are really to have the child to try out 1st , some reject straight . I have seen a number of kids with asd / gdd/ DS attending preschool n CC. so continue to look for it and you can actually ask the social worker in rainbow school to help as well :smile:

I believe so. As P3 change of new form teacher and classmates. I understand his learning will be slower than peer but he is also very low motivation in doing his work. Since P1 till now he never take out his homework, spelling or pack his bag. I need to remind him everyday. Even though we came out a do list after school together.

Dear parents,

Very happy to find this group chat and thank you very much for all the useful information shared.

I need your advice for my DD who is diagnosised as gross motor skills delay. She is 12 months now and started PT at nuh at 11 months. Would like to understand more how PT works, cos the therapist only assessed her condition and showed us what we can do at home to train DD. I thought the therapist would train her, but seems that is not the case. Can experienced parents share if this should be the case? Thanks!

Hi Choute,
Usually PT assess and will teach the parent what to do at home. As the duration with the PT is very short so at home we need to do it at a regular basis to help the kids to improve. From then on as the kid improve, the PT will recommend other exercise accordingly.
Hope this help.
