Our Campaign Story

ends 31 May 2022, 11:59 PM

Zi Kuan was diagnosed with Spastic Quadriplegia, where he has difficulties using all four of his extremities. He is a 29-year-old beneficiary, who joined the Day Activity Centre (DAC) in Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore (CPAS) in 2012.

He enjoys coming to DAC to attend the different activities with his friends and participate in the thematic teaching lessons by his Training Officer.

Zi Kuan faces difficulties in communicating and expressing himself. He is wheelchair bound, and the lack of mobility in his arms and hands makes it challenging for him to use any Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) devices to communicate with others.

Zi Kuan was introduced to the Tobii Dynavox eye-gaze device, where he learnt how to communicate using his eye gaze. His Speech Therapist introduced him to games to teach him about target control and dwelling of his gaze to select what he wants. Now, he is working towards mastering the skill of focusing his eyes to select words to communicate.

Your support and kind donation can help us to realise the potential of adult beneficiaries such as Zi Kuan here at CPAS. With dollar matching, the impact of your contribution is doubled!

Thank you for your support!

Adults with cerebral palsy and multiple disabilities need your support.

Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore (CPAS) provides adult services such as the Day Activity Centre (DAC) and Goodwill, Rehabilitation & Occupational Workshop (GROW) to beneficiaries aged 18 to 55. The adult services at CPAS provides opportunities for adults with cerebral palsy and multiple disabilities to realise their potential and live life to the fullest.

DAC provides day care for 70 adult beneficiaries who require higher support, to nurture self-help skills through a balanced and structured curriculum. GROW helps adult beneficiaries in receiving vocational training and employment to develop their skills, build their self-esteem and provide an avenue for them to reach out socially to the public.

Furthermore, your donation will be doubled with dollar matching, where it will be matched dollar for dollar with the support from Tote Board and the Government. Every donated dollar becomes $2!
