B Programme

The B (Basic) Programme caters to pupils between the ages of 7 to 12 years old with Mild Intellectual Disability (MID).  The pupils are taught English and Mathematics as their main academic subjects, complemented by other subjects such as Physical Education, Art & Craft, Information Technology and Mother Tongue.

Reading Mastery which uses the Direct Instruction methodology was implemented in the B Programme to promote phonemic awareness and sound-letter correspondence.  It further develops into word and passage reading, vocabulary development, comprehension, and building oral reading fluency.

Students in the B programme also learn lifeskills as part of their curriculum. Lifeskills include a wide range of knowledge and skill interactions which are necessary for independent living. The three major skill areas covered in the B programme include daily living, personal effectiveness and social skills.
