About Campaignends 30 Nov 2016, 11:59 PM
The DAC programme provides training and support in the development of daily living skills, recreational skills, vocational and community living skills. We believe that adults with autism can find meaningful engagement, hope and to some extent work, when they are supported and equipped with these skills. With greater independence and adaptability, we hope that our adult clients are more able to navigate safely in the community and enjoy a better quality of life.
