We improve the child’s independence in daily tasks such as dressing, grooming, mealtimes, hygiene and other household or school activities- while always promoting their abilities within the family unit and class context.
We develop the child’s physical abilities, creative thinking and social skills – all essential for confident interactions and successful play.
We promote the students ability to take in and organise information, express their knowledge as efficiently and work as independently as possible. We aim for students to become more attentive, organised and productive with their schoolwork.
