The first of its kind in Sarawak
Autism refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with repetitive behaviours, speech, nonverbal communication, and social skills. Autism is a spectrum disorder and a person with autism may have different set of strengths and challenges from another person with autism. The ways in which a person with autism learn, think, and problem-solve can range from highly skilled to severely challenged.
What is OSEIC?
We are an early intervention centre - the first of its kind in Sarawak - set up to work on the developmental, health and support needs of babies and young children diagnosed with Autism, Down Syndrome or learning disability.
Our centre, which is specifically designed for children, is located in Metro City, Matang, Kuching. Our facilities include spacious classrooms and an activity area, a Snoezelen room, a Sensory Integration room, Hydrotherapy room, a Music room, a Toy library, and a dining area dedicated for children.
Early Intervention Program
Our Early Intervention Program (EIP) encompasses educational and therapy support services which help to equip the children in our centre with key foundational developmental skills. Early Intervention can be successful in helping children with developmental delays to reach their full potential and should begin between birth and school-going age, as it is important to maximize the potential of the child during this optimal developmental window.
