Through the Early Intervention Programme for Infants and Children (EIPIC), we aim to provide child and family-centric service to children with developmental needs aged six and below, as well as their families.

Through educational and therapy support, we work towards helping these children reach their fullest potential through facilitating development and improvement in five areas@

  • Gross motor and fine motor skills
  • Cognitive skills
  • Speech, language and communication skills
  • Social skills
  • Self-help skills

EIPIC is offered at four SPD Building Bridges EIPIC Centres: SPD Ability Centre in Tiong Bahru, SPD@Jurong, SPD@Bedok and SPD@Tampines.

The early intervention approach
Our trans-disciplinary team consisting early interventionists, teachers, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, psychologists, speech & language therapists and social workers work closely with the children and their families to achieve the goal set for the children.

To help the children gain independence, we embed learning goals in their daily activities and natural environments. We also equip parents and caregivers with the knowledge and skills to carry out the intervention strategies with the children at home to enhance learning.

Caregiver involvement
We believe that families play a critical role in the children’s development. Hence, we encourage parents to participate actively in the intervention process as well as activities that we conduct including caregivers training programmes, parent support groups and social recreational activities.
