Dear Parent or Guardian,    I hope this email finds you well.    This year we are hosting the Picture Exchange Communication System or (PECS) Basic & Advanced Workshop conducted by two representatives from PECS Australia.   This intensive four-day workshopis designed to introduce you to the theory behind "The Picture Exchange Communication System" and how to teach your child to initiate communication with you.  PECS begins by teaching a child to exchange a picture of a desired item with a communicative partner, who immediately honours the request. The system goes on to teach the discrimination of symbols and simple sentence construction, in the most advanced stages children are taught to comment and answer direct questions. Studies have shown that a high proportion of preschool children with autism and related disabilities that used PECS acquired independent speech. Through presenter demonstrations, video examples and role-play opportunities. You will leave the workshop with an understanding of how to implement PECS with a young child with autism, related developmental disabilities, and/or limited communication skills. This interactive workshop is perfect for parents and/or professionals who want to expand the use of PECS across a wide range of activities and settings. Pyramid's skilled instructors will lead group discussions and video analyses regarding practical and resourceful solutions, and innovative problem solving strategies for complex PECS implementation situations. The training will further provide practical ideas for advanced lessons in expanding the learners' language and communication within functional activities, and essential tools for identifying communication opportunities across the day.   What You Will Learn: The key Pyramid components to designing effective educational environments Strategies to create an abundance of opportunities for communication The relationship between PECS and traditional communication training approaches How to implement all six phases of PECS with target individuals using a behaviour analytic orientation The criteria for transitioning from PECS to other communication modalities Agenda: 8th & 9th November 2014 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM ( PECS Basic Workshop) ( Day 1 & 2)                  15th & 16th November 2014 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM ( PECS Advanced Workshop) ( Day 3 & 4)  Registration Time: 8:30 to 9:00 AM  Tuition Fees: $ 1700 or $ 850 per workshop Tuition includes: A FREE Second Edition PECS Training Manual with Data Forms CD worth $ 80  Handouts and stationary for both days Training Certificate in both PECS Basic and Advanced (recognised worldwide) Lunch and refreshments on both days by The Grand Hyatt Hotel Singapore You may also visit our website at www.threesixtykids.com for more information.    Should you be interested in attending this workshop, simply reply to this email and a Three Sixty Kids representative will be in touch with you.

Hi, I want to take my kids to do something a little different - any idea? Something outdoors would be super!

Ben here. Just wanted to ask if other parents here have the same problem. my boy is 15 this year and he's okay when it comes to homework and assignments. not like fantastic or anything but he gets his B3s and even A2s sometimes. just that when the exams come, everything seems to fly out the window and he always ends up with lower grades than he's capable of. does anyone have any tips to help him? is it specific to subjects too because this always happens for math and science subjects. his languages are so-so but my wife says he's always fantastic at home but seems to forget or mess up during the real thing. any help/tips are welcome. we are happy to try anything at this point thanks in advance.

Does anyone know what the cost is to take a child (under 8) to Universal Studios?

My ex-wife and I both agree that it is best for my daughter to live with me because my ex-wife is starting a family and she doesn't want our daughter to be left out in the process. I am thinking of settling her in a local primary school instead of international schools because I want her to be grounded in the culture and language of Singapore. My question is what are the chances that she'll be able to get a slot? I do understand that foreigners are at the bottom of the list. Am I just wishful thinking that we would be able to get a spot? I hope you can share your experiences with me. Thank you.

I don't understand the main difference between these two types of schools other than the other one exists to earn profit and the other one is not. Please do enlighten me. Thanks.

Hi I will be visiting Singapore next month to check out schools, property etc as hope to be moving here later in the year. I have used Angloinfo in Barcelona all the time and it's really been helpful especially as my Spanish is not as it should be. My children have been at an international school here and obviously want ton find them a similar school in Singapore. I am looking at TANGLIN Trust School  and OFSS and Chatsworth. I would like to hear from any parents their opinions and perhaps any other schools to focus on.

My son is interested to learn how to play classical guitar. Any ideas where I could bring him for lessons? Or if you know of any freelance teacher who can come to our house, that would also be great. Thanks.

Finally an authentic child friendly hotel in Bali. We stayed in one of the family villas with a gorgeous view of the ocean and our very own jacuzzi. Butler service is perfect. My husband and I had a relaxing dinner for the two of us because they were able to keep our kids busy. Really happy with the resort.
