Helping Families in Need Access Signposts Training
Helping needy parents of children with developmental needs afford the cost of Signposts training
Partner: KK Women's and Children's Hospital
Signposts for Building Better Behaviour (Signposts) is a programme to help families manage difficult behaviours of children (aged 3 to 15 years) who have developmental needs or intellectual disabilities. Developed in Australia, it is designed to help parents work out the reasons for their child's behaviour, learn effective ways to manage and prevent more difficult behaviour from developing in the future. Signposts was introduced at the KK Women's and Children's Hospital through the Temasek Foundation Cares - IMPACTT pilot programme in 2013. Through Temasek Foundation Cares, disadvantaged families can now afford the course fees for Signposts training.
The programme also includes making the Signposts training more accessible to the public by translating its materials into vernacular languages.
1,950 children with developmental needs are expected to benefit from this programme.
