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.

APSN And Brainy Moves Support Autism Awareness Month

APSN and Brainy Moves support Autism Awareness Month

In support of Autism Awareness Month in April, APSN and Brainy Moves jointly organised an exhibition at the central business district of Singapore, Raffles Place from 4 to 15 April 2016. The exhibition was kindly supported by British Education Centre and the venue was kindly provided by National Parks Board.

Through this exhibition, Brainy Moves also hoped to raise funds for APSN, in commemoration of its 40th anniversary in 2016 and build greater understanding and inclusiveness in our Singapore society.

Staff and volunteers from Brainy Moves and APSN alike were present during lunch times to raise awareness for persons with special needs and the struggles faced by parents in caring for their children with special needs. Commercial handicraft items made by APSN students, cookies baked by APSN Bakery Enterprise and Brainy Moves merchandise were sold to fundraise for APSN Training and Education. A total of S$5257.40 was raised through this event.

APSN is greatly appreciative of the involvement in such a momentous project and would like to deeply thank Brainy Moves for organising and making this exhibition a huge success.
