About Campaignends 31 Dec 2021, 11:59 PM
2021 has been a year filled with many transitions and challenges for many of us, including our clients and their families.
Staying true to our mission, we continued to empower the lives of many persons with Down syndrome and their families through lifelong learning and social integration. At DSA, we have various programs and services catered for persons with Down syndrome such as our Infant Toddler Program, Integration Facilitation Support Program and Independent Living & Training Centre. We also provide support services for our families/caregivers.
Meet the Haq family. When they heard that their child, Fazlul, has special needs, they were confused about how to raise him up and were worried about his future. The family is currently attending DSA's Infant Toddler Program which helps to support a child's early development and mentor parents to be confident nurturers. Mr Haq shares that “ITP helped a lot. Especially in improving his motor skills, his communication skills, and now he will try to get involved in communicating with friends and neighbours. To the new parents who found out that their child has special needs, don't lose hope. There is a way to help the situation."
This Christmas, we would like to invite you to walk alongside us towards an inclusive society. Your gift can uplift the life of a child with Down syndrome and bring support and hope to their families.
