Dear mummies

My K2 son is not able to focus in class which has affected his learning. It may also be partly due to his immaturity as he's a December kid. He may also be midly dyspraxia. I'm looking for some intervention programme to help him in these areas. Intend to stop his other enrichment classes because if his attention problem is not addressed, he will not benefit from any enrichment.

Recently read an article about Learning Difficulites inThe Straits Times, and Bridge Learning Centre at Choa Chu Kang was being featured. Has anyone sent your kids to this centre before, and is the programme beneficial to your child?

Any comments would be much appreciated. Many thanks! :please:

Hi, we had sent dd there for assessment when she was in K2.

The center given us a Diagnostic Assessment Report on area like:

Behaviour During Observation
Expressive and Receptive Language
Visual Memory
Auditory Discrimination and Memory
Fine Gross Motor & Coordinating skills
Visual-Perceptual Skills
Reading and Comprehension
Recommendations

I found this assessment was very useful as we got to understand and help dd better after knowing her strength and weakness.

Hope the above information is useful to you. :lol:

Hi Brenda10

Many thanks for your response. May I know if you've signed up your DD for any of their programmes, and if so, what are the programmes and are they beneficial to her? I've gone down to the centre this morning to find out more about their programmes, but still not sure if we should put DS in this centre because it's rather far from my place. There's another centre, Cognitive Development Learning Centre at Buona Vista, that is much nearer to my place.

Does anyone has comments about Cognitive Development Learning Centre?

Many thanks!

Hi gerberadaisy,

They had higlighted a few area for improvement but we did not take up any intervention program because of the distant, time and cost.

However, we had done it ourselves to improve on area that she was diagnosed weak and now at P6 she is actually doing ok lah.

Before you intend to enroll your son to any EIP program, they will be asking you to assess your son 1st. There will be no written report for BL (Bridge Learning) & they will be asking you to attend their program min. 2 IEI session per week.

Focus @Jurong also provides assessment & they'll provide written report. I find that their report is more systematic & you can use it for reference.

Hi
I sent my son for five months since Jan 2012 at Bridge Learning. However we are ending the sessions when term ends in May. I did not find the lessons useful and saw very little improvement in my son's development. The teachers tend to be young with cursory training - unlike other trained speech and IEP Therapists. Having gone through both the conventional categorical and non conventional categorical method, I am definitely inclined towards the former.
