Established in 1976, Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN) is a social service agency providing special education for persons with mild intellectual disability (IQ 50-70). Today, APSN operates four Special Education (SPED) Schools (APSN Chaoyang School, APSN Katong School, APSN Tanglin School and APSN Delta Senior School) for students aged 7 to 21, an APSN Student Care Centre for children aged 7 to 18 and an APSN Centre for Adults for persons aged 16 and older, benefiting over 1,200 beneficiaries each year.

The APSN Schools and Centre adopt a holistic approach in its curriculum, comprising academic, vocational and social skills, which are important for open employment and lifelong learning. APSN seeks to enable persons with special needs to be active contributors of the society and is committed to inspire and build capabilities of its partners and community to lead and advocate an inclusive society.

Advisory on COVID-19

In view of the COVID-19 outbreak and as part of APSN’s continuing efforts to provide a healthy and safe environment for everyone in our schools and centres, we have implemented the following, taking reference from the Public Health Advisory issued by the Ministry of Health (MOH) and measures from the Ministry of Education (MOE):

  1. APSN requires any staff, trainee or student who have travelled to China to declare their travel history and monitor their health closely for two weeks upon their return to Singapore. They should seek medical attention promptly, should they feel unwell.
  2. Staff, trainees and students returning from China will be given a Leave of Absence (LOA). The LOA will be valid for 14 days, starting from the day after arrival in Singapore. The LOA applies to APSN students, trainees and staff who return from China (including Hong Kong and Macau) on 14 January 2020 or later.
  3. The Ministry of Education (MOE) had also instituted a range of measures including issuance of advisories to remind students and staff to practise good hygiene habits and how to stay safe during this period.

For visitors to APSN

To safeguard APSN schools and centres from unnecessary exposure, APSN has set up a Screening and Temperature Measurement Station for visitors to APSN including, but not limited to, vendors, contractors and volunteers.

We would also like to advise members of the public to avoid visiting our schools, centres and café, should you be exhibiting cough, cold and fever symptoms.
