Our Campaign Story

ends 05 Nov 2022, 11:59 PM

Dayyan is an energetic and cheerful 6-year-old student who has been with CPAS EIPIC since March 2020. Diagnosed with Suspected Global Developmental Delay, Dayyan initially displayed significant challenges in remaining on-seat and managing his emotions (e.g., anger, sadness, and fear). This affected his ability in paying attention during lessons and establishing friendships with his peers.

During his intervention sessions in EIPIC, Dayyan works on his on-seat behaviour through the help of visuals and brain breaks (e.g., dancing, and simple exercises), and he is now able to focus and pay attention for a longer period. He is also learning how to share and take turns with his classmates, and to manage his emotions better.

Dayyan aspires to be a scientist and EIPIC hopes that his time in CPAS and the skills that he has learnt here will set him on the right path towards making his dream come true.

Your continued support will help CPAS to continue empowering the lives of our children such as Dayyan in EIPIC.

Thank you!

About Campaign

Children with cerebral palsy and multiple disabilities need your support.

Established in April 2005, the CPAS Early Intervention Programme for Infants & Children (EIPIC) provides early intervention for children aged 6 years old or below, who are diagnosed with one or more disabilities. EIPIC aims to prepare them for admission into either a Special Education school or a mainstream school.

The curriculum domains covered by EIPIC focus greatly on the children's development, including areas such as fine & gross motor skills and social-communication skills. To maximise the developmental growth of each child, EIPIC provides holistic and individual developmental programmes through the Trans-Disciplinary (Trans-D) Approach for every child. EIPIC also adopts a thematic based syllabus so that the children can learn through holistic, real-life experiences.

Your continued support makes it possible for CPAS to continue sustaining essential programmes such as EIPIC for our clients with cerebral palsy and multiple disabilities. Join us as we work together to empower the lives of our children in EIPIC.

Thank you!
