Assessments are the initial step in determining which programs would be most beneficial to the person seeking our help. We do a variety of assessments based on the needs of the family of an individual with special needs.
Screening and Diagnostic Assessments, Functional Skills Assessments, and Occupational and Sensory Assessments are all available from the team.
‘Education’, is often connected to the education imparted at schools, colleges and so on. We often limit it to academics: learning to read, write, do math, the sciences and a number of other theoretical subjects. However when we use the word ‘education’ in connection with individual needs., we need to broaden our definition and look at it as more holistic and complete learning, one that aims at maximising the potential of an individual over a life span.
The focus of the teaching is multi-dimensional and encompasses all important skill areas like communication, social understanding, play and leisure, self-care routines amongst others.
The Educational Programs offered at Younique are the Early Intervention School Readiness Program, the Parent Child Training Program, and Individualised Educational Intervention.
