Comprehensive Assessment Programs are offered to schools. The school is required to provide space and ensure that they have between 8-10 children who are in need of the program. Support is required from the principal, school council, and families whose children attend the program.
SHINE works with various universities to obtain postgraduate students on clinical placements at the school. They attend the school three times a week for up to eight weeks. They are expected to see 8-10 children each day for up to an hour. An appropriate treatment program is recommended after discussions with school staff and families. SHINE locates and employs highly qualified and experienced professionals (clinical educator supervisors) to work with the postgraduate students in setting up the treatment program.
The clinical educator visits the school regularly when students are present to ensure that clinical quality is of a high standard. All programs have measurable goals, an intensive treatment program with a focus on engagement and fun, and daily tracking of progress.
A final report is prepared with a description of the program, goals, procedures, progress chart and further recommendations that are provided to the school and family.
