About Campaign

ends 04 Apr 2018, 11:59 PM
Autism is one of the world's fastest-growing developmental disorders. Despite this high prevalence, research shows that many parents of young children have very little knowledge about the signs of autism and are not seeking help early enough.

While there is currently no cure for autism, early detection and intervention can result in critical improvements across the lifespan.

In conjunction with World Autism Awareness Day 2018 on 2 April, Metta Welfare Association seeks to raise funds for its EIPIC programmes and services for children with autism at Metta Preschool @Punggol and Metta School. Established in June 2010, Metta PreSchool @Punggol specialises in early intervention programmes for children aged three to six from various races and religions who are diagnosed with mild to moderate autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and/or intellectual disabilities.

Metta School is a special education school for children aged seven to twenty-one with mild intellectual disability and/or mild to moderate autism spectrum disorder. Providing a holistic education that encompasses life skills, vocational skills, academics and the arts.
