Surveillance for children at high-risk of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

We offer developmental surveillance to children with high risk of developing autism, such as premature babies and children whose family members hove been diagnosed with ASD, particularly siblings. The goal is to help children from 6 months old to develop the milestones on time, as well as guide parents on how to support their child in a functional way and be able to notice any warning signs at on early stage.

Early screening for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Following to the most recently updated guidelines from The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), we offer developmental screening for all children at 9, 18 and 30 months old, plus autism-specific screening at 18 and 24 months of age. We combine specific tests with clinical observation of the child in order to detect any early signs as soon as possible to help the child on their pathways to normal development.

Early diagnosis for children Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

We offer a very early diagnosis for all children who have been screened positive with ASD, through a combination of the most reliable international play-based test, the ADOS-2, applied by internationally certified specialists, to provide accurate clinical evaluation and to conduct a structured interview to parents.

Early and intensive intervention

We offer an intensive intervention based on the Early Start Denver Model, applied by internationally certified therapists, and supervised by an international official expert to help each child develop age-related skills in all the areas of their development. We aim to develop the best potential of the child and reduce their challenging behaviors to the minimal level.

Parents coaching

The most recent research shows that parents who receive coaching tend to have less stress, and their children have less severe autism traits later in life. We believe that parents play an important role in the child’s education and development progress. Our regular in-person and online sessions of parent coaching will support parents in learning how to interact with their special rights child and develop their full potential.

Personalized training and consulting services

VICA offers specific training to all other schools in Vietnam to understand more about autism, to learn specific educational strategies and be able to make proper educational plans supporting special rights children with academic and social skills in the school. We also offer child – individualized consulting to support teachers in a practical way and share our experiences to ensure the best learning outcome of the child.
