About Campaignends 31 Jan 2022, 11:59 PM
Established in February 2006, the CPAS Day Activity Centre (DAC) provides care and skills training to adults aged 18 to 55 years old with cerebral palsy and multiple disabilities, who are not suitable to work at our Sheltered Workshop or whose family members are unable to take care of them during the day.
CPAS DAC adopts the Trans-Disciplinary (Trans-D) Approach to support clients with a holistic team and Assistive Technology equipment, as we strive to develop the optimal capabilities of the clients and enrich their lives.
With training by the Trans-D team using Assistive Technology, our clients can increase their self-confidence, self-esteem, and independence to perform tasks like opening the door, switching on and off lights and fans in the classroom, communicating their needs and wants, taking photos and playing computer games.
The kind support from corporate and individual donors like yourself allows us to continue providing and exploring more Assistive Technology equipment for more clients. This includes the e-pad mount, eye gaze systems, tablet computers, iPads, Voiceitt, SMART Devices and more.
This campaign is launched in commemoration of the International Day of People with Disabilities.
