She frequently threw tantrums and acted out her frustrations through inappropriate speech and behaviour whenever she was being corrected. She also had issues with her peers and did not like changes in routine, situations or personnel.
Jason, her form instructor, worked closely to help Felicia develop healthy coping skills for dealing with her frustrations. Through guidance, Felicia is now more open to the instructors' advice and can accept necessary changes in work or routines without being distressed.
To fulfil her dream of working in a kitchen and becoming a famous chef, Felicia works hard to meet her targets and develop the necessary skills to transit to our F&B Catering Specialised programme. Her family supports her aspirations and they are proud that she is striving towards a fulfilling and independent life.
Here at APSN CFA, we help empower individuals with mild intellectual disability, like Felicia, to become active contributors to society by equipping them with the necessary skills required for the workforce through vocational training, realistic on-the-job training and support services.
Your generous support helps provide our trainees with the necessary support and resources to develop their skills, pursue their passions, and achieve their goals.
