Supporting Your Child – A Parent’s Guide for Young Children who need Early Intervention
Learning that your child has special needs is the start of a journey into the unknown.
To support parents and caregivers of preschool-aged children who may have developmental needs, MSF, ECDA and MOE have published a guide to empower you to find out more about:
- Your child’s development,
- Accessing Early Intervention (EI) support,
- Supporting your child’s transition from EI to school-aged provisions, and
- Accessing support for yourself and your family.
Inside the guide, caregivers can access resources to equip themselves as caregivers:
