Our Approach

The Zeebah Place uses the Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) teaching principles which is an approach to understanding and changing behaviours.

Our trained Behavior Technicians use ABA to teach several skills which will help improve the child’s challenges in the area of communication, social skills, stereotypical behaviours and academics. Often, it is in a one-on-one setting.

Transitioning to Mainstream School

Part of our goal at The Zeebah Place is to make every child who passes through our system, become an integral part of the society. This includes eventually getting transferred to a mainstream school.  We, however, do not take the transition recommendations to a mainstream school lightly. The child will be evaluated  individually to look out for several abilities and coping skills.

During the assessment for transitioning to a mainstream school, the following areas are considered:

  • Academic skills
  • Communication skills
  • Social skills
  • Behavioural skills
  • Independence

For each registered child at our centre, a prerequisite assessment by our Clinical Team determines his / her deficiencies. An individualised program is designed based on the evaluation report.

Overtime programs are introduced, mastered and generalised to make sure the child applies these skills at home and other social settings.

Welcoming a new child

We aim to help all our autistic children transition to mainstream education.

To start off the process we work with children to find what are their strengths, gifts and other areas that can be enhanced or where a child might need help.
This assessment focuses on:

  • Communication
  • Social skills
  • Challenging behaviours
  • Academics
  • Independence
  • Functional living skills

A unique program for each child

Post our assessment we create a developmental path with defined goals and milestones. Parents receive continuous feedback on recorded progress.
