Manfred is usually quiet and tends to keep to himself. However, when asked about his hobbies, his face lights up and he excitedly starts to share more about his passion for drumming.
23-year-old Manfred Pang has mild intellectual disability and William’s Syndrome. He also has a dislocated left shoulder, which makes it challenging for him to carry heavy loads. When he first joined APSN Centre for Adults, he needed months to adapt to the routines and structure of vocational training.
His instructors, Francis and Chong Tong, worked closely with Manfred to help him develop vocational skills necessary for his work tasks. Through the guidance of our supportive staff, Manfred is now able to perform different work tasks and is able to work together with his peers in tasks that require lifting or carrying.
To fulfil his dream of being a drummer, Manfred works hard to meet his targets and develop the necessary skills to transit towards a fulfilling and independent life. The work tasks at APSN Centre for Adults have helped Manfred to improve his focus and multi-tasking abilities, which are also useful for his drumming lessons.
Here at APSN Centre for Adults, we help empower individuals with mild intellectual disability, like Manfred, to become active contributors to society by equipping them with the necessary skills required for the workforce through vocational training, realistic on-the-job training and support services.
Your generous support helps illuminate the dreams of our trainees by providing them with the necessary support and resources to develop their skills, pursue their passions, and achieve their goals.
