CCLAS program is focused on the overall development of children with the developmental age zero to five years through CCLAS approach by implementing the principles of Cognitive, Communicative, Emergent Literacy, Adaptive and Sensorimotor functions.
In CCLAS approach the Cognitive domain, children with GDD will be undergoing intervention to improve different skills such as planning, categorization, judgment, memory, problem-solving and higher order thinking skills to build up their overall cognitive level. In the Communication domain, intervention is focused to improve speech and language skills. In this area, strategies to improve different components of language (phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics) and oral-motor exercises to improve speech intelligibility will be done. In Literacy domain, emergent literacy skills such as phonological awareness, letter knowledge, emergent reading and writing skills will be focused. In Adaptive domain, training will be provided to improve activities of daily living and thus improving the quality of life of children with developmental delay. In the Sensorimotor domain, the specific goal will be taken to develop sensory and motor skills including eye-hand coordination, hand functioning, leg functioning and sensory integration skills. CCLAS program will be executed in three levels based on the developmental age of the child.
BASIC CCLAS program (B-CCLAS): This program includes children with the developmental age between birth to two years.
INTERMEDIATE CCLAS program (I- CCLAS): This program enrols children with the developmental age range of two to three years
ADVANCED CCLAS program (A- CCLAS): This program includes children with a developmental age range between three to five years will be incorporated.
