“Every child has a different learning style and pace. Each child is unique, not only capable of learning but also capable of succeeding.” – Robert John Meehan
Despite the challenges, we will never miss providing education and therapy to the children at home. With the help from their supportive parents, we are able to assign them at least five tasks a day based on the Individualised Education Plan (IEP) that includes attending skills, imitation skills, and receptive skills. We keep each other updated through phone calls, WhatsApp, and Zoom meetings.
We have been receiving positive feedback from the parents, saying that they are now able to manage their autistic children in more efficient ways through ongoing support and guidance from the teachers. However, there is only one limitation since the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) started because some of the parents need to go back to work. This contributes to a lack of time they can spend with their children at home to complete the given tasks.
On the other hand, we are fortunate to have a child psychiatrist to conduct virtual sessions with the parents and teachers. This is important since most of the autistic children are not used to sudden changes in their schedule and this MCO has made them feel uneasy and bored, which then leads to some changes in their behaviours.
