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.
