Our Early Intervention Program (EIP) / (EIPIC) is a customized group intervention program for children aged 1 to 7, aimed at preparing them for the academic rigor of primary school. EIP / EIPIC is based on the Carolina (US) Curriculum of Assessment and covers all the domains of learning.

Our Vision is to provide personalized learning services for children with special needs and community reefs of support for their families in the developmental journey of their children.

We maintain a close relationship with parents and caregivers and equip them with clinical techniques that can be applied and generalized at home, so each child’s learning is not confined to the therapy setting.
