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 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 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.
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.
The Rehabilitation 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 are not ready to enrol full time at the school.
Opportunities and facilities are provided for development in the field of sports, particularly in BOCCIA. Boccia is a precision bowling game competed by wheelchair bound athletes. Participants are trained to a level where they may be selected for centralized training by the National Sports Council, for representing Malaysia at conpetitions at national and international levels. Others sports offered are swimming for the disabled, frame football, etc, depending on the ability and inclination of the student.
Percussion music classes are held every once in a week. The classes involve students from Sheltered workshop, vocational and Functional Academic Class. The students are trained by a volunteer music teacher where music will help them in hand coordination and movement. The group receives many invitations to perform at public events.
