  • Letter on Needing More Public Education to Make People with Disabilities and their Caregivers Feel Welcome
  • 6 January 2017
  •  
    Even as Singapore progresses towards being a more inclusive society by making its physical assets, such as public transport and infrastructure, more accessible for people with special needs, communication and psychosocial barriers to inclusion still exist as the general public may be apprehensive about interacting with persons who look or act differently.
     
    SPD executive director Mr Abhimanyau Pal shares on how public education is necessary to gradually change this lack of social consciousness and empathy towards persons with special needs in a letter published in Today’s Voices on 28 December 2016.
      
  • In Conversation with Speech Therapist Valerene Tan
  • 6 January 2017
  •  

    Speech therapists are a rare breed in Singapore. Even with an increased demand for speech therapy services across different settings in Singapore, it is heartening to know that working in the social service sector is still the top choice for some of them. Dawn Wee, SPD’s Programme Head for Early Intervention Programme for Infants and Children (EIPIC) and Continuing Therapy Programme (CTP), had a chat with Valerene Tan, speech therapist with the Building Bridges EIPIC Centre, and got to hear her motivations for joining and staying in the sector.
