Make a positive impact as an Early Intervention Teacher
As an Early Intervention Teacher, your ability to make a positive impact in the lives of children with special needs will be second to none.
The Early Intervention Programme for Infants and Children (EIPIC) provides therapy and educational support services to children with special needs. As an EIPIC teacher, you will be working with children aged below six who have one or a combination of the following:
- Physical disabilities
- Sensory disabilities
- Development delays
- Intellectual disabilities
Through the programme, these children will be equipped with fine/gross motor, cognitive, communication, social and self-help skills. As an EIPIC teacher, you will be playing a leading role in helping your young charges enhance and maximise their developmental growth potential while minimising the onset of secondary disabilities.
Working together with parents and professionals at the centre, you will map out Individual Education Plans for each student, plan the class curriculum and conduct learning activities that will stimulate the students’ development and help them to be ready for mainstream school.
EIPIC teachers are highly sought after. Projections show that about 60 additional EIPIC teachers will be recruited annually for the next few years.
