As we continue on to celebrate the month of social work this March, Isabel Tan, a social work practitioner from AWWA Dementia Day Care Centre shares her thoughts on the work that she does. “As a social work practitioner at AWWA Dementia Day Care Centre (DDCC), I embark on this journey alongside our caregivers, supporting them to the best of my ability in preparation for what is to come. We work towards finding each client’s strength and empowering them to take on suitable duties such as helping out with chores or facilitating group activities. Through this, we hope to create opportunities for clients with Dementia to contribute and at the same time, re-build their confidence. We also educate and empower caregivers to provide quality care for their loved ones. Being part of the multi-disciplinary team in DDCC has been nothing short of fulfilling; being with my clients is always a recharging experience. The clients and caregivers we serve have taught me so much about resilience, patience and unconditional love.”

AWWA School turned 39 on 9 Mar 2018! Themed “My Sensorial World”, students of AWWA School engaged in some multi-sensory activities at the different sensory booths. Each Multi-sensory activity was creatively tailored to stimulate their five senses. For example, the “Herb Garden, Spice Kitchen” for the heightening the sense of smell and “Candy Dandy” for stimulating the sense of taste. AWWA School also entered the Singapore Book of Records for the largest playhouse created from recycled plastic bottles! This was done through the collective efforts of about 295 students, 150 teachers and staff. The students learnt about the process and importance of recycling and got the opportunity to channel their creativity through this activity. Congratulations AWWA School and Happy 39th Anniversary! Here are some photos from the day’s happenings 🙂

"George" is all of our kids
... See MoreSee Less

HAVE YOU SEEN GEORGE? This short film is inspired by real, frequent encounters experienced by children with special needs, many of whom live isolated childhoods and are at the receiving end of "the look". An Inclusive Attitudes survey we conducted found while two-thirds of the public were willing to share spaces with children with special needs, they were not willing to interact with them. Seven in 10 Singaporeans are supportive of inclusive education, but only half are comfortable having their child seated next to a child with special needs in class. We need to work towards being more accommodating to those around us as our children mirror our actions. A lack of socialisation between children with and without special needs will continue to engender fear and breed a divided society. Ultimately, all children who can creatively work with those different from them will thrive in this increasingly complex world. Please share this film if you like it. #inclusivesg Enabling Village NCSS Singapore MSF Singapore Beanstalk Singapore Autism Resource Centre Singapore / Pathlight School Rainbow Centre, Singapore Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS) AWWA Superhero Me Directed by: Huiwen Yang & Charis Anne Lim Illustration & Animation by: Siewmay Khoo & Marilyn Neo George's voice: Jun Le Lee
