About Campaign

Adults on the autism spectrum can thrive in employment. But they need help.

It has been proven that with training and support, many people on the autism spectrum can work.

Individuals on the autism spectrum have strengths and abilities like you. When matched to the right jobs, and with training and support, they can be productive contributors to society.

Autism Resource Centre (Singapore) (ARC) runs a structured programme under its Employability and Employment Centre (E2C) to enable adults on the spectrum to be trained, gain and keep employment.

However, not everyone may be suitable for work. Not every employer is able to scope or redesign jobs that fit the strength of individuals on the spectrum. Some will benefit from specially scoped jobs or work models that are not available in the open job markets.

ARC creates some of these jobs and income opportunities through its social enterprises, The Art Faculty and Professor Brawn, as well as other ongoing and new initiatives.

The current pandemic has impacted all of us. Job market conditions have weakened. Dine-in restrictions and semi-lockdowns have resulted in a sharp drop in the footfall and businesses of our social enterprises.

Please help us sustain our programmes and services.
Thank you for caring and making a difference in transforming lives!

About the Charity

ABOUT US
Autism Resource Centre (Singapore) or ARC is a not-for-profit charity based in Singapore. Registered in 2000, it was started by professional and parent volunteers dedicated to serving children and adults on the autism spectrum to help these individuals lead meaningful and independent lives in society.

OUR PROGRAMMES
To ensure individuals on the autism spectrum realise their maximum potential with the support of their caregivers and professional team, ARC provides a wide range of core services.

ARC started Pathlight School, the first autism-focused school in Singapore offering a unique blend of mainstream academics and life skills for primary and secondary students.

Other signature programmes include early intervention, training for professionals and caregivers, employability and employment services, enrichment programmes and library and information services.

ARC also operates two social enterprises, The Art Faculty and Professor Brawn, to create and provide more job opportunities for individuals on the autism spectrum and adults with other disabilities.
