Key Programmes

Students are categorised into three levels, according to their chronological age:

  • Early Intervention (3 years to 6 years)
  • Primary (7 years to 12 years)
  • Secondary / Vocational (13 years to 18 years)

Three programmes are offered to students at USPED:

  1. The High Support Programme caters to students with moderate to high support needs in all areas of their daily living and learning. These students require more assistance in mobility, fine motor skills, self-help, and learning, and will pursue lessons that will promote their well-being.
  2. The Functional Programme caters to students with mild to moderate support needs in most areas of their daily living and learning. In the senior level, students will learn pre-vocational skills that will support their learning in the vocational domain.
  3. The Academic Programme caters to students with mild support needs in most areas of their daily living and learning. Students in this programme follow the mainstream curriculum for English, Mathematics and Science only, in addition to the Curriculum Framework for SPED Schools. At the age of 9 years, students in this programme are assessed for suitability for education in mainstream primary schools before they transit there. If that is not possible, they can continue to pursue their education following the mainstream curriculum at USPED. If they do not pursue secondary education, these students will continue their education at USPED.
