Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Jul 2022, 11:59 PM

Ryzqy is a 13-year-old student at the Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore (CPAS) School, who was diagnosed with epilepsy, cerebral palsy, and global development delay. He is a sociable boy who enjoys attending school, running errands for his teachers, and making friends. He greets others with a smile and a gestural wave to say hello.

Before joining CPAS, Ryzqy moved around using a kaye walker and was constantly scared of falling. He is now learning to walk independently, and has shown a lot more confidence. This allows him to become more participative in lessons and being in the community.

Ryzqy is non-verbal and was previously communicating using gestures. Currently, he is learning to communicate using Proloquo2go, an application with a voice function, that allows him to choose symbols or phrases to request, respond or simply to say hello.

Ryzqy is also in the Track and Field CCA where he represents the school for external competitions in races. He displays good sportsmanship, confidence, and resilience to finish the race even though it may be difficult for him to do so.

Your support and kind donation can help us to empower youth clients such as Ryzqy here at CPAS.

Thank you for your support!

About Campaign

Our students with cerebral palsy and multiple disabilities need your support.

Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore (CPAS) houses CPAS School, a double-session Special Education (SPED) school that serves students aged 7 to 18 years old, with moderate to severe multiple disabilities. CPAS School offers the SPED Curriculum as recommended by the Ministry of Education, to equip our students with a holistic education to live meaningfully, learn continuously and work productively.

Students in CPAS School participate in a wide range of activities, including Co-Curricular Activities (CCA), Values-In-Action (VIA) projects and projects arranged in collaboration with CPAS corporate partners. These activities help to further enhance the learning and development of our students.

With CPAS being a one-stop centre for persons with cerebral palsy and multiple disabilities, students from CPAS School also have access to essential services that help in their development, such as Occupational Therapy, Psychology, Physiotherapy and more.

Your support will help CPAS in continuing to sustain such services for our students. Together, we can empower our students and help them realise their full potential.

Thank you!
