SEED (Readiness) Programme
Your child has been diagnosed with a learning disability or disorder. You want your child to experience a vibrant school life. Not just survive, but to thrive. Now What?
We are on a mission to revolutionize and redefine education and learning in Asia, to foster a truly inclusive and equitable education for students who require an additional degree of ongoing and individualized attention.
SEED stands for “Social, Emotional, and Educational Development.” The maximum class size is 8 students with two full-time specialist special education teachers (SEN and Behavioral Therapist) supported by Speech and Language Therapist, Occupational Therapist, and a psychologist in the classroom.
The SEED Program is specifically designed for students who are not yet ready for our mainstream curriculum at The Winstedt School (TWS) and need more intensive learning support and resources. SEED specialists have a demonstrated track record of success at TWS and were selected specifically for SEED. Aligned with The Winstedt Way, every unit of study planned for a SEED student is deliberately designed with research-based expertise, and bespoke for every individual child.
The goal of the SEED Program is to improve the school-based experience of those students who require an innovative and specialized approach to classroom instruction. The Program’s model utilizes a child-centered approach to ensure the appropriate levels of support and interventions, not found in typical classrooms, are readily available.
SEED Program delivers a trans-disciplinary team consisting of:
- SEN Teacher and Behavioral Therapist: these are the “homeroom” teachers who are with the SEED students throughout the school day
- Psychologist: Dr Pam delivers a social and emotional development curriculum twice per week
- Speech and Language Therapist: a dedicated in-house Winstedt SLT therapist comes to SEED class weekly for Winstedt’s group push-in session, and is available to SEED students onsite throughout the week to provide expertise and assistance to the homeroom teachers
- Occupational Therapist: a dedicated in-house Winstedt OT therapist comes to SEED class weekly for Winstedt’s group push-in session, and is available to SEED students onsite throughout the week to provide expertise and assistance to the homeroom teachers
SEED applies Winstedt-designed integrated trans-disciplinary educational model customized for SEED student profiles. Integrated therapy and social and emotional skills development are curated as part of every SEED student’s day-to-day compulsory education. Compare this to other schools that offer ad hoc therapies that are conducted in isolation from the student’s overall classroom and learning pathway. All SEED specialists work strategically in tandem, not in isolation, for our students.
Our approach ensures maximum impact in the ongoing growth and development of each individual student based on their profile and specific learning needs.
