Shining Stars Integrated Programme
For age 7 and above
The Integrated Programme is a social engagement group programme, designed to prepare children for employment or social engagement opportunities by providing them with a safe creative environment and learning opportunities to thrive. It aims to facilitate empathy-building, problem-solving, and life skills to help children and young adults self-manage, overcome barriers, strengthen social relationships and prepare them for life and work. These goals are achieved through increasing social, emotional, physical and cognitive capacities through art and play activities that nurture a person's a sense of discovery. The Integrated Programme provides persons with opportunities to learn, be curious, build their confidence and engage with others, through our EXPLORE, EXPRESS, ENGAGE model.
The goals for the programme are broken down into 4 general segments: social, communication, emotional regulation and independent daily living (IDL). These segments branch off to more focused goals; which are catered to different age groups.
