What We Do  

 

After School Training Program

Children who have difficulty in focusing attention, controlling their temper or disruptive behaviours, or learning language would probably experience problems at mainstream schools.

The purpose of after school training program is to provide school-based group training for children who would like to enhance their attention, impulse control or language ability, which can facilitate their learning at school. Through the application of advanced technology, the training program can be replicated in multiple schools.
