Hi, Pathlight serves a spectrum of students. I used to teach at the school. Majority of the students are verbal. There are some with limited speech who prefer to write rather speak to indicate their wishes.

Cheers

to enter Pathlight Secondary school :
firstly, the child has to be diagnosed with autism, before pupil can apply for Pathlight Secondary.

for PSLE T-score

as long as the child pass PSLE and is eligible, qualify for Express, NA (Normal Academic) or NT (Normal Technical) course, Pathlight will accept the student's application.

But do note, admission is subjected to availability of vacancy.

if parent have decided to enrol the child into Pathlight after PSLE, parent can submit the application form to school, even before the results are released, and then update the school when the T-score is released in November, again.

At the application stage, school looks at the psy and other reports that parents submit. I think there is a cut off for IQ numbers. This is the first-cut process to filter children who meet their criteria.

Towards the middle of the year, PL conducts a screening exercise for those who clear its application procedure to look at whether the child is able to listen to instructions in a small group setting, and if they can stay on-seat.

The above are general criteria that I know of PL ref its enrolment process. At a personal level, my daughter does not listen to instructions all the time. There were also times where her teachers reported that she switched off lights and fans during lesson time, or that she pushed tables towards walls in class.

Hi All, i'm not sure if this thread is still active. I m new to this forum and i hv 2 boys aged 9 yrs and the younger one at 16 mths. My eldest boy was diagnosed ASD and now in the process of applying for a place in Pathlight with the help of Child Guidance Clinic. I don't hv my parents' support in my decision to put my boy in Pathlight. I kept asking myself if i hv made the right decision. My intuition tells me that my boy will benefit from Pathlight in the long run. My boy struggled v hard in mainstream for 3 yrs n i don't intend to put my boy thru more pressuring times ahead.

Hopefully my boy will b able to get admitted by next year term 2.

Happy Holidays to All! :lovesite: :imcool: :rahrah: :lol:
