DSA(S)’s Children’s Education Services (CES) seek to promote services for children with Down syndrome from birth to the age of 18.

These services include:

 

Infant Toddler Programme (ITP)

ITP is for infants and toddlers younger than 3 years old, who have Down syndrome. The programme is designed to:

  • Help support families and caregivers
  • Enhance the development and learning of infants and toddlers through individualized, developmentally appropriate activities within the family’s and child’s everyday life experiences
  • Provide an opportunity for parents and their young children to learn together.

 

Integration Facilitation Support Programme (IFSP)

IFSP provides additional support to children with Down syndrome who are attending primary schools and kindergartens. Since 2009, the Tripartite Collaborative Approach adopted by DSA(S) with educational institutions and parents have helped children with Down syndrome to thrive in the mainstream education.

 

Educational  Enrichment Programme (EEP)

EEP helps to look for providers of educational enrichment activities that are appropriate for children with Down syndrome from ages 4 to 18.  The primary focus of this service is to support the learning of functional literacy and numeracy skills. When there are appropriate providers, the activities will be managed by the “Programme & Enrichment”.
