We provide indoor and outdoor learning through special rooms and field trips.

outdoor learning Maitri School

We enhance learning through authentic and experiential learning.

For example, below, you would see students learning how to prepare for cleaning, in a mockup of a HDB flat. This allows students to practice daily living skills in a context that is as close to the real situation at home, under the safe supervision of teachers.

We adopt a whole team approach and engage caregivers to co-educate the child.

Through home visits, parent-teacher meetings, and Individual Planning Day, we involve parents in being part of the education journey.

We invest in staff development.

Internal Training and mentoring programmes

We built internal training and mentoring programmes so that teachers can learn and grow systematically in their professional journey.

To create autism-friendly environments, we adopt a structured teaching approach.

  • The set up in each classroom is similar to promote independence in students.
  • Visuals to promote understanding are widely used as our students are predominantly visual learners
  • Routines are put in place to provide regular interventions and encourage good work habits
