TLC Early Intervention Programme

Program Basis

TLC‘s Early Intervention Programme (EIP) provides therapy and educational support services for infants and children with special needs.  It is the only EIP in Singapore with special focus on Speech, Language and Feeding Therapy. There is a strong body of research pointing to the importance of early, intensive language and literacy instruction in a language-rich environment that spans developmental domains and that focuses on both expressive and receptive vocabulary, literacy and numeracy*. The program works to enhance your child’s development of cognitive, behavioral, social, and self-regulatory capacities. It develops their potential, thereby overcoming developmental delays as far as possible.

At TLC, our EIP is helmed by highly skilled inclusive educators. The program, which also includes School Readiness, is designed to improve outcomes, and ensure  your child receive a wholistic and integrated early childhood therapy and curriculum. The program is of high quality and focused on didactic learning activities, such as teaching children letters and numbers, while encouraging play-oriented and discovery-learning activities in a language-rich and emotionally-supportive environment.
