​“Over the years, I have seen a mindset shift towards attending to the care of the vulnerable. We now have the Development Support Programme which empowers early childhood educators to detect and help children with special needs; as well as the Supporting Autism through Family Empowerment programme where a team of healthcare professionals provides home-based care for children with autism. We need to develop a passionate team of advocates to plug the societal gaps in understanding and accepting people with special needs.”
