Students on the autism spectrum need to be taught basic life skills that are not learnt from a general academic curriculum. The teaching of self-help skills, leisure skills, and vocational skills requires ongoing, systematic instruction from teachers who are skilled, committed, and patient.

Research indicates that basic life skills are crucial to long-term independence outcomes for students on the autism spectrum. Without careful instruction and opportunities to learn and practice skills, our students run the very real risk of being relegated to more restrictive environments, unable to function and contribute to our Singapore society. At Eden School we understand the importance of our mission and strive to be the change we want to see.

Lousy management

Poor upper management who has no clue of what they are doing. With very outdated classroom management experience, management has no idea what they are talking about or doing. No room for career advancement as management practices favouritism. No yearly review of kpi so you can be on the blacklist if you just step on the wrong toes

Don't join!

1) Horrible work culture which micromanaging style by the management and leaders.

2) 1 person is to take up 4 person job scope.

3)Below market level salary scale.

4)No career progression if you want to be promoted higher.

5) Lack of trust to all staff, hence the clock in and out system when you report for work.

6) Too many committee involved that created lack of time for the main work scope.

7) Unclear and numerous changes to task given to staff, which created waste of efforts and time.

8) Hire and fire mentality, those staff not in the good books of the management will be asked to leave ultimately.

9) Poor benefit and rewards system.

10) Office politics is pervasively scary to newbies.

Organized and efficient workplace

A typical day at work involved supporting the children in our care. through their activities for the day. The students were moderately to severely autistic.The maintenance of a smooth routine ensured that the students did not face undue stress in their activities.

I learned how deeply loving relationships become possible even without words or seemingly difficult communication with autistic children. The qualities in my co-workers, especially their ability to keep smiling and be patient under enormously stressful situations taught me that job satisfaction is not a function of money and position. It is in being able to feel that you make a difference to someone, even if it is that one child who depends on you.

The hardest part of the job was when the parents came with such love for their child, hoping that he had overcome at least one of the many difficulties in his life through our training.

The most enjoyable part of the job was when a breakthrough occurred, as when a child spoke spontaneously for the first time.
