About Campaignends 31 Mar 2022, 11:59 PM
Persons with ASD often have problems with social, emotional and communication skills. They may repeat certain behaviours, do not want change in their daily activities and have different ways of learning, paying attention or reacting to things. At the DAC, our Training Officers work with them to reduce disruptive, aggressive and self-harming behaviours and teach them skills to adapt to different social situations and manage triggers. Through activities such as Diamond Art, persons with ASD are trained to focus on a work task and to follow instructions, increasing their attention span. Caregivers get the much-needed respite from round-the-clock caregiving that helps to restore some balance in their lives.
Donors who have contributed to $50 and above will receive a MONEY FM 89.3 umbrella as a token of appreciation (for the first 100 redemptions). Simply fill up this form with your donation confirmation: https://forms.gle/Lfr29eZRYfWsckRj9
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.
