A fleet of vehicles specially adapted to suit commuters on walkers and wheelchairs takes Alvin and Karen to and from the Workshop each day. Since starting work, Madam Ang observed several positive changes in her children. "Alvin was the quieter of the two, and unable to speak well," she said. "He is communicating more clearly now and is better able to understand the instructions given." There, the siblings are engaged in sub-contract work such as packing products for commercial distribution and goody bags for events. "Working with their hands at the Workshop has helped them improve their mobility, and they also have more friends," said Madam Ang. "They have something to do every day," she added.
SPD helps Alvin and Karen, and over 5,000 persons with disabilities. They need your support to remain as active members of our society.
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.
