Early intervention programme rolled out to support children with mild learning conditions
Parents can look forward to an early intervention programme that supports children with mild developmental delays.
It's called the Development Support Programme, and is being introduced in pre-schools across the island.
The programme will provide support to children with mild learning difficulties like speech and language delays and behavioural problems.
Specially-trained pre-school staff known as Learning Support Educators will work with the children in one-to-one or small group settings.
They will also provide classroom support after completing the intervention packages.
Fees for the programme will depend on the type of intervention the child needs.
Subsidies from the Ministry of Social and Family Development are available. Lower-income families will get higher levels of support.
The programme is expected to benefit about 2,000 children a year once its rollout is complete.
