Primary: Age 3 – 5 years
The Early Intervention program aims at providing the stimulation that the absorbent mind requires. The goal is to achieve pre-requisites to academic learning. The fundamental task of the child during this phase of conscious absorption is intellectual development and freedom. The child’s mind compels him/her to sort through, order, and make sense of the information he/she unconsciously absorbed. The child learns through Play, Art, Sensory Activities, and a structured environment.
Preparatory : Age (6-10)
The function of the Primary Years is for the child to learn through all senses.
The Primary Years Program focuses on building academic skills, group skills, motor development, basic computer skills, work skills, communication and daily living skills. Instruction is given in a structured environment in one-on-one and in group settings. We focus on physiotherapy which is an integral part of the educational program of a child on the autism spectrum. We have the services of a dedicated physiotherapist who provides tailor-made inputs through a variety of activities which include the Domains of Activities of Daily Living (ADL), Sensory Processing (for those with Hyper/Hypo Sensory issues), Play, Leisure, Cognitive, Motor (Gross and Fine) and Social participation.
Pre-Vocational: Age (10-18)
The pre-vocational program aims at transition from academic learning to functional applications by focusing on each student’s inherent strengths and building confident young adults. Structured activities directed towards vocational training help build the prerequisite skills needed to transition to the vocational training unit.
Life Skills Training( skills like grooming, housekeeping, cooking and serving which can be translated into activities in their daily life, Functional Academics( reading and math is taught in the context of the activities the students are engaged in), Computer Literacy (typing and introduction to Microsoft Office applications and exploration of creativity) and Independent Work Skills (being able to complete tasks without any adult supervision) all become important part of the pre-vocational program.
School Readiness Program
The School Readiness program is 6-month program allowing students to build the pre-requisite skills needed to transition to the full- day school programs. The program teaches classroom readiness skills including, following a class routine, understanding transitioning, toilet routines, self-help skills and communication.
