The Spastic Children’s Association of Selangor & Federal territory (SCAS&FT)has come a long way since its humble beginnings in 1960. It has now become a vital link to bring hope to spastic children so that parents with children suffering from cerebral palsy could seek help and assistance from trained personnel.
The Association manages a Spastic Centre that provides numerous services, facilities and activities that are used to care and treat these special children. Among them are free transportation, education and various therapies such as physiotherapy and hydrotherapy.
Even till today, the Association is a proud reminder of the kind volunteers and staffs that offer their help and time to care for the children. It continues to give awareness programs to the public in hopes that this disorder is misunderstood and hence break down the barrier of doubts and suspicion that often linger around people with cerebral palsy.
The Centre has been blessed to have had the support of the government and many well-wishers. However thanks to the foreward planning of its Board, it is 50% self-sufficient, in spite of giving all its services absolutely free.
The Centre is now embarking on an even more ambitious programme to expand its facilities as well as increase its self-reliance. This will guarantee our continued survival.
