Our Campaign Story

ends 06 Dec 2021, 11:59 PM

Having worked with people with disabilities and myself being a person with disability, I have the strong belief that kids have to be exposed to different things in order to develop. A child's not going to find out he likes to play a musical instrument if you never exposed him to it. SPD is doing an important activity in training autistic people in diamond craft, a craft that requires extremely fine hand-eye coordination & dexterity. While completing the diamond art, they are trained to gradually increase the length of time that they are able to concentrate on a work task, and also their sitting tolerance. So please support them in their development.

About Campaign

Since 2018, the SPD Day Activity Centre has expanded its enrolment to serve adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). People with ASD often have problems with social, emotional, & communication skills. They may repeat certain behaviors and may not want change in their daily activities. They also have different ways of learning, paying attention or reacting to things.

To improve their quality of life and independence, our training officers conduct a series of activities that taps on their strengths to increase their basic skills. One of the activities that many of our clients really like is diamond art, a craft that requires extremely fine hand-eye coordination & dexterity. While completing the diamond art, they are trained to gradually increase the length of time that they are able to concentrate on a work task, and also their sitting tolerance.

We hope that you can show them your support by making a donation. Your donation will encourage them greatly, and help SPD to continue providing the much-needed programme & services to help them be more self-reliant & independent.

For a donation of $50 & above, you will receive 1 x Diamond Art* as a token of our appreciation. Once the donation is made, kindly email the confirmation screenshot or confirmation email to [email protected] and we will follow up with you.

Of course, you can also choose to make a donation to show your support and opt to not receive the diamond art.

About The Charity

SPD is a local charity set up in 1964 to help people with disabilities maximise their potential and be a part of mainstream society.

We are here to help children and youths with special needs reach for the stars and be the best that they can be through early intervention and educational support.

We strive to boost the self-reliance and mobility of persons with disabilities within the community, and we do so through therapy services, assistive technology and the support and encouragement of our care team.

Our day care programmes provide respite to families, making it possible for persons with disabilities to stay with their loved ones at home for as long as possible without having to resort to institutional care.

A strong advocate for inclusive employment, we train people with disabilities and work with them to seek suitable employment opportunities so that they can be financially independent and lead a full and engaged life.

After more than 50 years, we remain focused and committed to enabling people with disabilities.
