EIP during a one-to-one session
We’ve reached the second half of the year and our activities for the past 3 months include:
Parents Support Group on 24th May 2014
Our guest speaker for the event is Ms. Wong Tze Ping, a Speech Language Therapist from University of Nottingham, Malaysia Campus. During the session, she helped us understand better on the development of speech and shared with us strategies and tips on encouraging speech, language and communication of a child.
The event was an interactive one as there are parents who also shared their experiences and how they helped/encouraged their child’s communication skills.
5th National Early Childhood Intervention Conference (NECIC 2014) from 4th to 7th June 2014
The event was held in Kolej Sains Kesihatan Bersekutu (KSKB) Sultan Azlan Shah, Ulu Kinta, Ipoh, Perak. The theme for the conference is “Passion has no Parameters” and it focuses on (1) inspiring families to be involved, (2) inclusive education, advocacy and needs beyond EIP, (3) sharing our pain, hope and ideas, behavioural management & skills transfer and (4) policy and managers.
Participants of the event consist of locals and international attendees. All staff from Wings Melaka attended the event.
Visit from the dentist on 21st and 22nd July 2014
There was a visit from Klinik Pergigian Klebang Besar, Melaka consisting of a dentist and 3 nurses to our centre. They did dental screenings and a presentation on “How to Brush Teeth” during the session. We are able to understand better about dental health i.e. why and what we should do to take care of our teeth & gums.
As to-date, we are supporting 27 students in EIP, 5 students in SAP and 8 students in YAP with 6 teachers in EIP & SAP, 5 trainers in YAP and a centre manager.
A big thank you for your constant support as it is a blessing to us in our work in Wings!
