Trails Center provides individualized, dyadic and small-group sessions. The children are initially seen for an evaluation and therapy sessions will commence after providing the results of the evaluation and discussing the therapy plan with the parents.  The therapist in-charge and the parents will agree if the child is deemed ready to attend a dyadic or small-group setting.

Speech-Language Therapy

Special Education Intervention

At Trails, special educators assess child’s academic skills and develop intervention programs based on his academic strengths and difficulties as well as his parents’ goal. We provide individual management based on a comprehensive assessment. Specific supportive teaching and simplified learning strategies are given so that topics/lessons would be easily understood. We give the child strategies on how to answer his homework by processing him on how to answer instead of just giving the answer. Materials used are developmentally appropriate to facilitate learning. We also provide children some pre-voc activities such as food preparation.

We see children who exhibit:

  • Difficulties in decoding and reading comprehension
  • Dyscalculia or difficulties in understanding and retaining rules, formula, order of calculations, and basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts
