Child development research has established that the rate of human learning and development is most rapid in the preschool years. Thus, preschool education is crucial as it lays a strong foundation for children to become lifelong learners.
Children with learning challenges or developmental delays need targeted strategies that work toward integrating them into mainstream schools. Early intervention can dramatically impact your child’s developmental trajectory and improve the outcomes for your child and your family.
At Singapore Brain Development Centre, we appreciate the uniqueness of every child’s and believe that the most constructive and powerful way to improve a child’s learning potential is through targeted and individualised intervention and teaching.
We provide Customised Early Intervention Program for children with different challenges, including:
- Sensory processing disorder (SPD),
- Attention-deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD),
- Language and Developmental delays,
- Learning difficulties and learning disabilities

Hear it From a Parent:
After Joining SBDC EIP, my son is able to speak more and express what he likes and dislikes. His instruction taking skills have also improved. I am very happy that my son has shown confidence in walking by himself and being independent. I believe that the excursions have also helped my son to be more aware of his surroundings. After two weeks, my son is able to tap his own EZ- Link card and is more comfortable to take the public transportation. He is also more receptive to sounds and he doesn’t cover his ears as often. – Ms Rose
Ever since my daughter joined the Early Intervention Program, she has grown in so many ways. One of her improvements is the ability to be independent such as taking off her own diapers and changing her clothes. Another is the ability to recognise letters while reading and she showed more interest in reading.
I also really liked how there is a team of professionals such as the Occupational Therapist and Speech and Language Therapist who support with her sensory and language work. The Early Intervention Educators in SBDC EIP are also very experienced, caring, and most importantly, they showed genuine love towards my daughter. As a parent, I am able to see that they have put in their 100% effort in carrying out their duties. The facilities are also very clean and well-kept. The past 10 months of journey definitely had been a really beneficial one for my daughter. Thank you SBDC EIP! – Mr Teoh
