FY 2011-2012

Ee Peng Liang - Special Needs Building Capability Project
Building capabilities of the Special Needs sector in Singapore
Partner: National Council of Social Service (NCSS)

The special needs sector serves people with developmental, intellectual, physical, sensory or multiple disabilities. With greater awareness and better diagnosis, more children in Singapore are being diagnosed with disabilities at a very early age. This has resulted in growing demand for early intervention services and hence the need for more therapists and early intervention teachers.

In academic year 2011, the Ee Peng Liang Special Needs Building Capability Project offered study awards to students training to be physiotherapists, occupational therapists and early intervention teachers. Upon graduation, award recipients would serve in social service agencies such as Special Education Schools and Early Intervention Centres. The awards given out under the project were met with enthusiastic response and had played an important role in filling the manpower needs of the social service sector. For academic year 2012, the funding was increased for the project. More study awards were made available including a new award for those training to be speech therapists.

The programme is administered by the National Council of Social Service (NCSS). For more information on the awards, including contact information please refer to the website of NCSS at www.ncss.org.sg.
