Welcome to BEST.

My name is Phoebe Long and I am an educationist.

This site is created to introduce Breakthru Enrichment Station and for me to share my experience in aiding children with learning difficulties to breakthru in their difficulties. I was a kindergarten teacher since 1999, and has been working with many children since then, guiding them to learn and building their interest in learning. My past experiences including being a principal of InTouch kindergarten along Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur, using the well known Fungates System. Teaching is a joy to me especially seeing the child is able to breakthru in their learning.

I am also a licensed Brain Gym instructor, and Touch for Health instructor.

Breakthru Enrichment Station is the sequel to our well known BreakthruKids services. We hope with this expansion we could serve more families with children with special needs in a greater way, with bigger space, more facilities and more special need educators!

Independence skills development
Breakthru Enrichment Station started in January 2010. We provides breakthrough support through plenty of experiential play, interaction and relationship with our special needs children.Our programs are carefully planned for these children who encounter learning difficulty or behavioural problems ranging from integration sensory problem, ADHD, Autistic, Down syndrome, Dyspraxia to Dyslexia.Currently, we have 2 groups of children for our daily programme. First group is mainly for children age 8 and below who require foundational skills development to prepare them for learning or mainstream education.

Individualized learning
Individualized learning
Second group is mainly for children who have started learning but struggle greatly. These children usually age from 7 and above. For an education program that is wonderfully suited to these children, we utilize home schooling programs (ACE program of School of Tomorrow in particular) and Explode the Code to provide individualized learning complete to college level. They are allowed to learn at a pace that they are comfortable with, and with close coaching and encouragement they are encouraged to excel in the specific area or subject that they can do better than the rest.
Experiential play
Experiential play
Both groups of children will have time for interaction during free play, rhythmic movement, double-doodle play, reading aloud, structured and unstructured play, Original Play(R), domestic science together. Every week, the children will have experiential learning and exposure to nature and outdoor places like park, futsal, library, zoo etc..
Once a week, we have our Parent-Child Intervention Class on Thursday. Parents and their special need child attend the session together to learn and receive practical support in dealing with challenges face at home. We hope to empower these parents to love and support their children through relationship fostering.
