We are a Non-Government & Non-Profit Organization established since 1986 to provide Educational Training. Initially, there were only Deaf children, since 1990+, we also extended the Educational Training to the children with Intellectual & Physical Disabilities.
Besides Academic & Independence Guidance for the Down’s Syndrome (DS), Slow Learners (SL), Cerebral Palsy (CP), Audio (AI) & Visual (VI) Impaired children, since beginning of 2012, we have also incorporated Sensory Integration Therapy to help with their progress. As the number of children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is rising at a very alarming rate, we have also adopted the Japanese Kololo Method to guide them with Group Activities.
Due to many constraints that we are encountering, our centre is rather saturated with the present number of children that we are having now. There are many more children on the waiting list and we are yet able to take in, least to say those families who have yet steeped out to request for help. Our yearly expenses for the centre now exceed RM 300,000 yet the Students’ Fee Collection is only for 12 months totalling about RM150,000.00 a year. As the Teacher-Student ratio is as low as 2-5, with every student we take in, more fund need to pump in to the running expenses. Listing below is the statistics of the children in our centre:
The journey and battle to strive for the well being of the Special Angels is a long process. With that, it is our heartiest wish that more people are aware the Special Need People are among the 10% of our community and come forth to contribution in whichever area that you are capable. We invite you, whether as an Individual or Company to involve in this pledge. Together, we will be able to make a difference to the Society.
