The Development Support and Learning Support (DS-LS) programme was introduced in 2011 to support children in pre-schools who have mild learning difficulties, speech and language delays, and behavioural concerns. Carried out at the child’s preschool, DS-LS provides learning support and therapy intervention with the aim of improving his/her readiness for formal education and helping the child develop socialisation and classroom participation skills. Professional support is also given to pre-school operators, teachers, and parents to better equip them with skills to meet the special needs of the children under their care. This was previously known as Development Support Programme (DSP).

To help children optimise their learning in their pre-schools, the DS-LS aims to support children in the following developmental areas:

  • Speech and Language
  • Social-communication
  • Fine motor and handwriting
  • Gross motor and co-ordination
  • Attention and concentration
  • Learning and literacy
  • Social and emotional

Operating from SPD@Jurong and SPD@Tampines, our teams comprise of speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, learning support facilitators, educational psychologists, learning support educators and social workers.
