As part of our continuous efforts to enhance the development of children, we have been collaborating with various Community Partners. Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore (CPAS) is one of our Community Partners since year 2017.
The United Nations General Assembly designated 2 April as World Autism Awareness Day to highlight the need to help improve the quality of life of those with autism so they can lead full and meaningful lives as an integral part of society. It also aims to increase people’s awareness about people with autism.
In conjunction with World Autism Awareness Day 2019, we have invited Ms Cathryn Ang, the Vice Principal of CPAS to conduct a talk on Autism. The objective of the talk was:
i) To understand more about autism and also prevent misunderstandings based on misinformed stereotypes;
ii) To recognize the signs of autism; and
iii) To recognize the ways to support autism children.
