All About Special Needs Kids

Post by KayK » Wed Jun 20, 2018 5:38 pm

Hi fellow parents,

Looking at the forum threads, I realised that there was not a lot of information on official helplines, workshops and informative events that parents of special needs kids can attend or use - in order to provide the right kind of support for their child as well as to learn how to cope effectively.

Hence, I created this thread primarily for parents who are expecting or have special needs kids (children with Childhood Developmental Delays, Learning Challenges, Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, Speech and Language Delays, etc).

Please do post only what you deem is relevant! Thank you :smile:

To get the ball rolling,

I recently came across this event on Facebook that may interest some of you: https://bit.ly/2K4NAGd

It is a Health Talk to be held on 14th July 2018, titled:

Special Needs Kids? Early Intervention is Key. Act Now before it is too late!

Short Description:
What a pleasure to witness the growth of our cherished children and watch them blossom and shine. However, as symptoms of developmental disorders could be noticed, worry steps in: When to intervene? How to react? What to do?

Ms. Tricia Tam, a psychologist who has served in the field of Early Childhood Education since 2004, and Ms. Regina Phang, a principal occupational therapist, will share with you deeper insights on the importance of an early intervention in preventing the long-term effects of developmental delays. They will also show how you can give a hand to your child with developmental delays, learning challenges, or other conditions such as autism, ADHD, dyslexia, speech and language delays.
