Our Services

occupational therapy

OT is a client-centered health profession concerned with promoting health and wellbeing through occupations. This mode of treatment applies purposeful activities of self care, work and play/leisure to improve functional independence and enhance meaningful development.

Occupational therapists work closely with children to assist them become proficient in activities of daily living including self care (bathing, dressing, feeding, grooming, toileting), productive activities (house chores, learning) and leisure (play, social and communication skills).

speech and language therapy

This is a mode of treatment that focuses on the production and use of speech, difficulty in understanding and use of language, communication and feeding, chewing and swallowing. Speech and language therapists aim to assess and treat to improve speech, language and communication problems for children to communicate to their highest abilities


The physiotherapists mainly asses impairments and disabilities and disabilities for promotion of mobility, functional abilities, quality of lives and movements potentials for all children at the foundation centre. The goal of our physiotherapists is to assist each child to reach their full physical potential.

special education

Our special education program targets learners with special needs and aims at providing individualized and modified strategies to help each child acquire academic skills. This is implemented by special needs instructors who apply differentiated learning approaches to suit each child’s individual learning abilities.

child psychology

Aims at facilitating personal and interpersonal functioning of emotional, social, vocational, educational, developmental and organizational concerns throughout the child’s life. Our psychologists encourage children to develop a positive attitude towards life, recognise their strengths and freely express themselves.
What Drives Us

Our Mission

We greatly believe that every child is born and lives with individual potential to perform despite the labelled disability.
We therefore emphasize maximum focus on each child’s individual potentials and strengths to engage in productive activities and this is looked at as the basic foundation for skills training and talent exploration and development.
