The following programs are provided at our Special School:
Pre-School / Early Intervention Program (EIP)

Children are enrolled in Pre-school / EIP for two years. The programme includes learning and social interaction through play and regular therapy sessions. Upon completion of Pre-School, streaming is carried out based on Individual Education Plan (IEP) for children who are academically inclined to Mainstream Education (KSSR) and Special Education Curriculum for others.
Mainstream Curriculum (KSSR) Program

The KSSR program for mainstream school is implemented for children who are academically inclined to prepare them for the UPSR examination. Upon passing the UPSR examination the children are enrolled for Mainstream Secondary schools or Vocational School education. There will be regular follow ups by our Association to ensure a smooth transition for our graduates.
