At present, there are about 1 million special needs children in our country. However, only 1% of these children are enrolled in suitable educational programmes. The remaining has no access to appropriate education due to lack of aids and insufficient awareness of education in parents and the society or families cannot afford the fees of private special needs learning centres.
Realising the challenge faced by parents in finding an appropriate special needs education centre, Sau Seng Lum is determined to establish a professional special needs school – one which integrates comprehensive rehabilitation therapy and affordable education programme with the intention that children with special needs can achieve equality in education and establish themselves in society.
- To provide information and support to the family members and community.
- To give education and therapy intervention to the special needs children as early as possible.
- To provide support service for normal school students that has learning disabilities.
- To provide skills training for students who have difficulty in academic learning, enhance opportunity to be independent and contribute to community.
