"The CARE centre has done wonders for our son and his developmental problems."

THE APPLICATION PROCESS


Each prospective learner must undergo an initial screening at the Centre to determine whether they are suitable candidates for admission. If your child is suitable for admission, he or she will attend the Centre for a ten-day observation and assessment period. Once the assessment period has been completed, we provide a comprehensive oral and written evaluation which covers the key developmental areas assessed and considers an intervention plan.
