APSN

Established in 1976, Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN) is a social service organisation 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.

The Social Fairground
(2017)

15 Jul 2017

The Social Fairground

The Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN) teamed up with The Local People (TLP) and Singapore Land Authority to present a one of its kind event benefiting a good cause. The curated stalls and buzz at the TLP Art Market consisted of carnival games, shop-till-you-drop merchandise stalls and an array of performances by local singer-songwriters and APSN’s very own beneficiaries.

Participants joined in sports events which were reminiscent of good ol’ school sports day. Teams ran through an obstacle course designed to test their agility, speed and creativity. There was also a human library where one could interact with a person with special needs; find out their favorite hobby, hopes and dreams.

The aim of this event was to promote a culture of diversity, inclusion and attitudes of acceptance towards persons with special needs through a social platform with arts and sports elements. The amount raised funded APSN Centre for Adult’s operational costs, training and programmes.
