Top 5 Special Needs Child Centers in KL and Selangor
Most parents would agree that taking care of your children is a difficult job. But just imagine how much harder it can be for someone taking care of a special needs child.
Raising a special needs child can feel very taxing in terms of money and effort. From helping them learn how to interact with others to finding qualified therapists to saving up for any necessary medical treatment, it’s a bittersweet experience that few outside the community can truly understand.
However, over the past few years the Malaysian government and private citizens alike have been pouring increasing funds into setting up appropriate facilities for special needs kids. Listed below are some of the top 5 best special needs child centers in KL and Selangor.
Established in 2009, Kits4Kids is a private school developed specifically to assist children with disabilities and disorders. In association with Kits4Kids University and Training Centre, Kits4Kids Malaysia today provide an educational process that enables children with disabilities to become contributing members of their respective communities.
Kits4Kids strives to provide a stimulating and conductive environment for children between 18 months to 18 years old, catering to their individual development and growth. Their curriculum is developmentally appropriate for individual children, with special needs and learning difficulty.
Adopting both traditional and advanced teaching techniques, they individualise each child learning within their curriculum approach. Kits4Kids’ classrooms are equipped with aged appropriate toys and learning corners such as Home corner, Library and much more, providing children with the opportunities to learn cause and effect through concrete play. Aside from that, they maintain a low student-teacher ratio which allows their team of teachers to engage children with meaningful and constructive activities.

Hils Learning believes that some children are simply different learners, not less able ones. It is this philosophy of belief in the child that forms the foundation of their entire approach.
Their professional teachers start by determining what the child can do instead of focusing on limitations. Little by little, the thick crust of fear crumbles, allowing the joy of learning to filter through.
Children learn that they are capable in a way they had never imagined. Perhaps most importantly, they stop seeing their uniqueness as a hurdle and start seeing it for what it really is — an extraordinary way to reach the stars.
Hils Learning Offers a wide variety of services, including Educational Testing, Learning Support, Reading Mastery Programme, Play Therapy, Social Thinking, Counselling, Home Schooling Support, School Entry Preparation, and various other Training Programmes. Their unique approach is based on careful observation, allowing them to adapt their methodology and teaching methods to suit each individual child’s needs and learning style.
