Sharing: Can we be part of the journey towards inclusion for adults with Autism? (25 Oct 2019)

 

“All I want is my son to be independent in all his daily needs””I hope he can fit into society as much as possible””I wish she could have some friends to hang out with”
These are the hope and vision that we collected since 2016, from the parents with special needs in Penang and Vietnam.
We have been striving our best to work with students with special needs not just in sustaining jobs, but also aligning with parents’ hope, working towards their independent living and to be included in our society. Our students have been learning to take Grab and ordering food by themselves lately using 4 steps to communication!
We have been curious about parents from other states… Are we all thinking the same too? Here, Eileen and I (Alyson) would love to explore our neighbour state, IPOH to understand more about the journey of parents and people with special needs and certainly their hope and vision too! <3
Invitee:

Parents of children on the Autism Spectrum
