Pre-school in Shah Alam for children with learning disabilities open for registration

REGISTRATION is now open for a pre-school in Section 7, Shah Alam, that caters for children with learning disabilities.

Open to children aged five and six, Anis Special Pre-school (Prasekolah Khas Anis) focuses on children diagnosed with conditions such as autism, Down Syndrome, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Global Developmental Delay (GDD).

"The pre-school was developed by the Selangor government through Yayasan Warisan Anak Selangor (Yawas) and Jabatan Anak Istimewa Selangor (Anis)," said Selangor public health, unity, women empowerment and family committee chairman Dr Siti Mariah Mahmud in a statement on Wednesday (Aug 3).

"It aims to provide educational opportunities and facilities for children with special needs as well as serve as a benchmark for kindergarten operators in Selangor on a special pre-school catered for children with learning disabilities."

Registration is open to Malaysians from B40 and M40 categories. The parent or guardian must be born in Selangor or resided in the state for a minimum of 10 years.

The child must have attended an early intervention programme for a minimum of one year.

"Children at Anis Special Pre-school will be attending early intervention classes four times a week, for four hours daily," said Dr Siti Mariah.

"At the middle and end of the schooling session, they will each receive a comprehensive report covering their progress and performance throughout the intervention programme."

Interested parents can send their children for a pre-admission screening at a carnival on Aug 6, from 9am to 1pm, at Anis Special Pre-school, Jalan Plumbum 7/100A, Section 7, Shah Alam.
