The Identification and Classroom Management for Pre-schoolers with Learning Difficulties (ICMPLD) aims to empower pre-school teachers with the skills and strategies to identify and support children with learning & behavioural difficulties in the mainstream classroom.

The curriculum is designed to allow participants to:

  • Gain observational skills across key developmental domains to identify pre-schoolers with learning difficulties
  • Formulate intervention plans and utilise specific strategies to support these pre-schoolers in the classroom

Core modules

Four domains will be covered: Speech & Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Educational Therapy, and Educational Psychology.

In each domain, our team of professional trainers experienced in working with pre-schoolers and teachers in the classrooms will share insights of how the learning difficulties can be identified, types of strategies used to promote learning, and community resources available in Singapore.

Learning Outcomes

Upon course completion, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the factors that contribute to common speech, language, and learning difficulties

The course ‘Increasing Engagement in the Preschool Classrooms through Differentiated Teaching’ (IEPCDT) aims to equip early childhood educators with the knowledge and skills to implement differentiated teaching in their classrooms to increase student engagement and optimise student learning. In the face of growing diversity in the classrooms, educators need to recognise the benefit of utilising strategies that enable them to reach and challenge each student. Differentiated instruction is a powerful teaching strategy where educators can modify their instruction to address the strengths and needs of all learners. In this workshop, participants will learn what it means to differentiate teaching in the areas of content, process, product, and learning environment in the inclusive preschool classroom.

Upon course completion, participants will be able to:
• Analyse child’s level of engagement and identify the focused areas of intervention
