In line with this theme, they had the opportunity to visit KidZania!

Eagle and Puffin classes went on an outing to the Esplanade Theatre to watch a play! It was called “Us” and it was about friendship between three children who stayed in the same neighborhood.

The WeCAN EIP programme was developed in 2004 as a key component of Project Platinum to meet the needs of young children on the autism spectrum and their families in Singapore. The programme develops a scalable intervention package that can be implemented across Singapore and beyond for children on the autism spectrum between the ages of 18mths and 6 years. It also provides autism specific intervention for young children with the diagnosis of autism, in order to help them gain functional and independent skills for more successful transition.
