EPIC Skills Programme
A one-year long programme that supports children to develop personal, social and communication skills. The programme will focus on developing complementary skills that increase the ability of the child to function in a social environment, such as the classroom, scouts, and so on.
An assessment will establish the potential and needs of each child and a program with personalised goals and targets will be set.
Weekly group sessions (with a maximum of 4 children each) will support the holistic development of the child.
Group sessions address difficulties through multi-sensory and specialized activities which are adapted to the individual’s way of learning.
