Enhanced PPIP is a subsidy scheme that helps parents defray the cost of enrolling their children in selected private early intervention services.
Overview of Scheme
The Enhanced Pilot for Private Intervention Providers (Enhanced PPIP) is a subsidy scheme that offers more choices of early intervention programmes for children who have been referred for the Early Intervention Programme for Infants and Children (EIPIC). Parents who choose to enroll their children in selected Private Intervention Centres (PIC)s will receive subsidies that will help defray the enrolment costs.
