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.

Heros Among Us

Heros Among Us

Heroes Among Us is a fortnightly short series as part of a collaboration between Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) and Info-communications Media Development Authority (IMDA). 

Unlike the first season which focuses on people who overcame personal struggles or championed social causes, the second season emphasises on those who excel in their field.

This episode tells the tale of APSN Tanglin School teacher, Mr Andy Ang, and how he took learning beyond the classroom and got his students excited about dancing and gardening. The video also showcased the students in dance classes, as well as their performance at the Chingay parade this year.

The full article and video can be viewed here.
