About Educational Psychology Services
Education is an important social leveller in Singapore. Through our Educational Psychology Service (EPS), SHINE Children and Youth Services strives to serve children and youth with learning difficulties and disabilities, and related social issues.
Assessment, intervention and parent support services are delivered by our team of Educational Psychologists, Associate Psychologists and Learning Specialists.
The programmes are designed with the aim to contribute towards increasing a child/ youth’s well-being, empowering them to be life-long learners, and enabling their meaningful engagement and inclusion in the community.
Our services includes:
ALPS Language and literacy intervention programme
(to Actualize Learning Potential and Promote Skills required for meaningful learning)
EN3: Engage. Enrich. Enable
(Psycho-educational Assessment, Diagnosis & Consultation service)
(SHINE partners with community groups to run a volunteer supported reading programme for children with reading difficulties in the community.)
ALPS Literacy and Language Intervention programme
ALPS programme sessions incorporate multi-sensory approaches and practice-oriented methods to address the learning difficulties and disabilities of children between 5 to 12 years of age who are typically 2 to 3 years behind their same aged peers in their language and literacy levels. Sessions are designed to develop ability in language and literacy, and build competence and confidence to learn meaningfully. They are typically conducted in small groups of between 2 to 4, and children are placed according to learning ability rather than by school level.
Parents, teachers and volunteers are partnered through consultations, discussions and training programmes where relevant. Parent support sessions help to equip and empower parents and caregivers to understand and better engage with their children.
Children go through an intake assessment and consultation session to better understand needs and discuss follow up support and suitability for the programme. Wait times apply for the programme as well as for intake assessments that are conducted periodically in a year.
