Increasing Awareness, Acceptance, and Inclusivity – from our Board Member, Dr Nurhidayati M Suphan
April is World Autism Month, dedicated to increasing awareness about Autism Spectrum Disorder.
The United Nations General Assembly unanimously declared 2nd April as World Autism Awareness Day to highlight the need to improve the quality of life of those with autism, so they can lead full and meaningful lives as an integral part of society.
The autism community needs acceptance, more crucially, from society at large. Acceptance can lead to greater support, which is necessary for autistic people to reach their full potential.
Based on a true story, my niece wrote her first book, to help create awareness on autism amongst children. We hope we can facilitate acceptance at a younger age, so that our society may grow into a more inclusive society.
Many caregivers have had our fair shares of emotional coaster rides. A simple act of joining a mother’s network group opened my eyes.
MindChamps Allied Care Group Pledges 20% of Net Profits to CaringSG: Empowering Communities through Philanthropy
In a significant step towards supporting special needs caregivers and their families, MindChamps Allied Care Group has announced it will donate 20% of the company’s net profits to CaringSG.
“Only we ourselves, can be the writer of the lives we choose to live by. As a special needs caregiver, I choose to embrace it with an open mind and a willing heart.”
CaringSG members can enjoy discounted rates at Kaleidoscope Therapy Centre for selected therapies and early intervention.
Let’s not forget that what we do is extraordinary. Every single day, we make a significant difference in someone else’s life. No act of love, no matter how small, ever goes unnoticed.
When our CaringSG CAREwell Keyworker, Lee Xiuhua, first met the Teys at their home, they were overwhelmed with their son’s, Ryan’s, behaviour and worried about his future.
