Autism And Special Needs Q&A With Dr. Rajini Sarvananthan
Yours truly with Dr. Rajini Sarvananthan

Hence, we were very fortunate to be able to invite her to a Q&A session with the parents of autistic and special needs children at the Bridges EIP Centre on the 5th of September 2015. Sadly, we could not accommodate more parents for this talk. That’s why we recorded the entire session so that parents who could not make it for the event can benefit as well.

Dr. Rajini covered many topics, so we will not just provide you with the full video of the session. We have also prepared 18 smaller video clips that are specific to certain topics.


Shameless Plug

Before we get to the videos, I would like to first highlight and praise the great work done by the Bridges EIP team. Their phenomenal Early Intervention Program (EIP) has greatly helped countless autistic and special needs children. They have even created a new School Age Program (SAP) for autistic and special needs children preparing to join a normal school.

They are a charity-based organisation, dependant not only on monetary contributions but manpower as well. Therefore, please consider :

  • donating to Bridges EIP
  • becoming a volunteer at Bridges EIP

Any contribution to their efforts will help them reach out to and help more children with special needs. Call them at 03-7722-2473 and do your bit for these children!
