On the 28th of May, 2016, ParkCity Medical Centre unveiled their new Child Development Centre (CDC). The culmination of years of work, the Child Development Centre (CDC) is a one-stop centre that will provide comprehensive interdisciplinary assessment and intervention for children with special needs. They aim to :
- Use a interdisciplinary team approach in the assessment of the child to ensure accurate diagnosis, followed by an integrated intervention program
- Provide psycho-emotional and psycho-educational support to parents and caregivers whose child is newly diagnosed with developmental delay
- Become an advocate for the children and their parents and caregivers to ensure that their rights are protected, including special privileges and inclusivity by the government in educational and social environment systems.
- Contribute towards public awareness to promote inclusivity of children with special needs in daily life activities
The launch was graced by Dr. Rajini Sarvananthan and Dr. Susan Tan, who gave two short talks on “Early Intervention… The Next Step” and “Helping your child to be the best that he can be“.
But the highlights were the kids who were so special in their own ways. There was a special keyboard performance by Abigail Ang, and an art exhibition by Anthony Lee – both whom have developed their amazing skills despite being on the ASD spectrum. There was also a cupcake decoration demonstration by Junior Chef Leah, who taught herself how to bake to raise funds for her younger sister, Adele, who suffers from cerebral palsy.
It was truly an amazing experience. Join us as we take you through the launch of ParkCity Medical Centre’s new Child Development Centre.
“Kiss The Rain” By 13 year old Abigail Ang
ParkCity Medical Centre kicked off the event with a piano rendition of “Kiss The Rain” by 13 year old Abigail Ang. Diagnosed with autism at 4 years old, Abigail benefited greatly from early intervention, which included taking up music lessons and arts & craft lessons.
