Session 1 Anchor

Breakout Session 1

1A: Building a Circle of Care: An
Interdisciplinary Approach

Collaboration within the child’s ecosystem is quintessential to the holistic care and development of a child.

This workshop explores the interdisciplinary approach and the keys to making it effective.

1B: Walking the Talk: Bridging the Gap between Research and Practice 

The value-add that research brings to practice is often overlooked.

In this workshop, participants will understand the necessity of being “evidence-informed” in supporting programme delivery. Upon grasping the criticality of it, participants will explore how they can practically weave this into their own practice. 

Speakers:  Mr. Daniel Lin and Mr. Vital Tan

1C: Whose Role Is It? Promoting Executive Function in Children  

Nurturing executive function (EF) in children, particularly those from low-income families, is essential to unlocking their full potential and providing them with a chance for a brighter future.

In this workshop, participants will gain insight into the challenges faced by parents and uncover ways for professionals to empower families to promote EF-based life skills. 

Session 2 Anchor

Breakout Session 2

2A: Opening Doors: Conversations on Supporting Inclusion in Early Childhood Settings

Is it possible to create an environment where children with diverse needs can thrive? Where do we begin?


In this session, participants will gain insight into what inclusion can look like in early childhood settings and learn inclusive practices to shape an environment where children of all abilities can play and learn together. 

2B: Early Enough? Integrating Health, Education and Social Work Support for Low-Income Families

What is the value of integrating health, education and social work support for low-income families? How do we bring these distinct fields together?


Through this session, we hope to address these and bring to the forefront the impact of social-health integration on children from low-income families, as well as the challenges and enablers of integration in practice. 

2C: Designing a Better Future: Exploring the Intersection of Design Thinking, Innovation and Social Work

Why the buzz about design thinking? Is it possible to incorporate design thinking into our work?


In this session, participants can explore the possibilities of enhancing the reach and efficacy of social services through human-centered design.
