Individual Programs

At the Holy Angels, we run a number of Individual Programs, helping the children to improve their cognitive skills, fine motor skills, gross motor skills and speech language communication skills.15

Decisions on the placement of each child in the centre are made through the Early Intervention team (E.I.T ). The Early Intervention Team consists of a group of professionals involved in the area of learning disabilities i.e. Area Medical Officer, Special Liason Nurse, Physiotherapist, Psychologist, Speech and Language Therapist, Occupational therapist, Social Workers and Managers of special centres such as the Holy Angels. The E.I.T. meets once a month to discuss the clients already attending the centre, or those whom they would consider suitable for placement.13

It cannot be stressed enough the importance of early placement of these children on these programs, as so much work can be done at an early stage to prevent further development delay.
