Playground Final

Since January 2010, Breakthru Enrichment Station provides special education needs support through plenty of experiential play, interaction and relationship with our children of various ages. Our programs and goals are carefully set for these children who encounter learning difficulty or behavioural problems ranging from integration sensory problem, ADHD, Autistic, Down syndrome, Dyspraxia to Dyslexia.

With the setting up of Breakthru Academy in 2014 by the same group of enthusiastic founders, we are now also on a mission to develop more special needs educators in this country continuously upgrade our own facilitators with skill sets and new knowledge, at the same time, provide valuable coaching to all parents.

Our Organic Way to Draw Out the Potential
of Children with Special Education Needs

Applying The Principle of Safe Space for
Child Directed Learning within Boundaries

A child will need to feel safe in order to be calm and reach out to the world. Safe to make mistakes, safe to choose. Learning happens when he or she begin to recognize pattern within a provided context or boundaries.

Our centre’s objective is to help children and teenagers to breakthrough their learning challenges, which includes:

  • Dyslexia
  • Dyscalculia
  • Language difficulty
  • Developmental Coordination Disorder
  • Underachievement
  • Poor Concerntration
  • Social Communication
  • Difficulty fitting in regular schooling environment

Children that came to our centre to develop their independence, confidence and interactions including those who demonstrates:

  • Autism
  • Asperger
  • Down Syndrome
  • ADHD
  • ADD
  • William Syndrome
  • Angelman Syndrome

In addition, with provide training, information, consultation to parents and family members in order to see consistent result in their children’s development. We often discuss and plan with parents the necessary independent service program for their child, the way to be warm and respectful, and walks along with the child’s growth to see his or her eventual “graduation” into inclusion school, vocational trainings or job employments.

Our Vision

"One day, all intellectually challenged and special learning needs people are independent and confident human being living and contributing positively and healthy to our society."

Founders

Ngiam Lian Ai, was a specialist Domestic Science teacher, and retired as an Assistant Principal of the school PPKI (Special Education Integration Program). In that time(?)She was also a counsellor and advisor for vocational expertise, bringing awareness and initiating training for students with special needs in government schools and non- profit organisations. She has more than 30 years of teaching experience.

Helping people with special needs is close to her heart. During her husband, Lim Wah Heng’s career as a teacher for the blind, they opened up their home to nurture and care for blind children who needed support notwithstanding that they also have their 3 girls, Melissa, Melodi and Joy, to care for.

At Breakthru Enrichment Station, she has established the baking and cooking curriculum so that the students who came her way would learn a vocation and skill that would be useful and possibly critical for their future. One story of success is Elaine, who came to Breakthru Enrichment Station as a suicidal 9 year old and later transformed into a successful baking professional who is well-appreciated by her employer as a valuable staff.

Phoebe  Long  has over 20 years of experience teaching children, teenagers   and   young   adults who have behavioural or learning  challenges.  The Montessori- trained  teacher  has served as headmistress and principal of two kindergartens using the FunGates system. Seeing the need, she later founded Breakthru Enrichment Station for special needs children together with her mentor, Ngiam Lian Ai, an award-winning former assistant headmistress of a government school with 34 years of teaching experience.

The centre was awarded the Best Special Needs Developmental Centre by Babytalk + Papamama Reader’s Choice Award in 2018. As an international faculty member of the US-based Educational Kinesiology Foundation, Phoebe is a mentor to instructors of Brain Gym®, Movement Based Learning, Rhythmic Movement Training International and Touch for Health™ programmes.
