The Association offers life-long FREE support to children with cerebral palsy through various services and programmes. The Association manages a day Centre which comprises of a Special Education School, Vocational Training, Sheltered Workshop and Rehabilitation Centre.
The School Section
Carries out teaching in special education as well as extra-curricular activities including sports, music, outings, art and craft. Children with cerebral palsy are encouraged to be admitted at an early age to the Early Intervention Program (Pre-School), learning elementary academics and also attend regular therapy sessions. The School is divided into two categories. Children who are academically inclined are taught the mainstream curriculum while others are taught a special curriculum tailored to suit the individual's needs and abilities with special emphasis on functional skills and living skills.
Vocational and Sheltered Workshop
Children who are placed in the Vocational Classes are taught basic independent, social and living skills. We have a Sheltered Workshop where the students do cross-stitch, bookmarks, greeting cards and other handicrafts and also do packing kind of activity e.g. packing of gloves, for which they are paid a token sum as an allowance. This payment qualifies them to be recognised as "bekerja" and be entitled to a monthly "Elaun Pekerja Orang Kurang Upaya (EPOKU)" of RM 450.00 from Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat Malaysia.
The Rehabilitation Centre
Provides a comprehensive range of treatments covering physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, hydrotherapy and Riding with the Disabled (RDA) to the children at the school. Out-patient services are extended to the children who are unable or not ready to enrol full time at the school
