Helping Families Navigate Life with CAREconnect Webinars
Contributed by Dr Ngiam Xin Ying, CaringSG Webinar Lead
Dear CaringSG members,
Thank you for joining us on the journey of learning more about being effective caregivers to our special children, no matter their age. We at CAREconnect have had the pleasure of organizing the monthly webinars for the second year running.
This year, we deep dive into selected topics – instead of a general overview to be covered in the short space of a single webinar, we will cover different aspects of a single subject across 2 consecutive months. We hope that this gives our participants greater insights and deeper knowledge.
We have an amazing team behind you – Edward, our CAREconnect Lead; Lilian, CAREconnect Co-lead; Chris, our IT and Communications manager; Elysia, our CAREconnect Project Coordinator; and Jeffrey, our Senior Project Executive. We all hope that the content covered in the webinars will help you and your families navigate the different stages of life.
Do continue to sign up and show up for our webinars – and if you miss the webinar for any reason, know that you can watch the replays when they are made available.
Have a wonderful 2023!

Practical tips to help caregivers and special needs children transit from preschool and EIPIC to primary school
The Purple Parade 2023, held on November 4th, was a heartwarming celebration of inclusion and support for individuals with special needs, their caregivers, and supporters.
You cannot pour from an empty cup; self-care is a necessary part of being an effective caregiver. It is perfectly okay to pamper yourself to something you’d like to do, prioritise rest and lean on others when you feel weary.
