SPD Reaches Out to Children with Learning Disabilities
SINGAPORE – The Developmental Support Programme will be participating in the Tampines Learning Festival 2013, on Nov 3, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. to reach out to children with mild learning difficulties.
In May 2012, the Society for the Physically Disabled (SPD) was appointed by the Ministry of Social & Family Development to provide developmental support. Since then SPD has served more than 100 school-going children and helped them in the areas of language development, literacy, social skills and handwriting.
“Children with undetected learning difficulties are often discouraged by poor results. It is important that they receive professional support so that they can learning effectively,” said Zunaidah Bte Shahul Hamid, Head Development Support Programme
The Development Support Programme also conducts training to help educators and caregivers learn how to identify signs of learning difficulties in children and how they can help them overcome these challenges using different learning strategies.
To find out more about how you can help children with learning difficulties, join us at the Tampines Learning Festival 2013.
