Association For Persons With Special Needs


Supported by National Council of Social Service (Community Chest), Ministry of Education and Ministry of Social and Family Development, Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN) is an approved Institution of Public Character (IPC).   Founded in 1976, APSN was set up as a voluntary welfare organisation to provide special education for persons with mild intellectual disability (IQ50-70) through a holistic approach in the development of academic, vocational and social skills.   The Association provides dedicated and specialised educational pathways for ages 7 to 21 through the operation of its 4 Schools- APSN Delta Senior School, APSN Tanglin School, APSN Katong School, and APSN Chaoyang School, while the Centre for Adults (CFA) provides continued vocational training and preparation for open employment from 17 years old and above, all the way to adulthood. In partnership with her stakeholders and community, APSN equips persons with special needs through best practices in education, training and support services for open employment and life-long learning.   Since 2016, APSN established its sheltered enterprises, such as the APSN Mystical Café for All. The café provides trainees from the APSN CFA with safe and realistic training to learn valuable skills that enhance their employability.  The farm-to-plate concept of the café also means that vegetables and herbs are freshly grown in the in-house vertical farm, harvested and served. All café’s proceeds are channelled back to support APSN’s programmes and provide a small allowance for the trainees. By fostering interaction between the public and our trainees, APSN helps build acceptance and encouragement for the special needs community.
