Parents Support Group in October 2013
Our advisor, Mrs Yammy Ang shared about the “Top 8 Ways to Improve Your Special Needs Child’s Behaviour”. She coupled the sharing with her own personal experiences with her child and methods she had used to help him. She encouraged parents that the hard work they put to help their children will reap positive results in the long run.
During the quarter, we have a counselor who visits us every week to render her services to the parents or their family members, as well as to staff of Wings Melaka. We also have a visiting consultant for our programmes who comes every month to give training to the teaching staff and to help fine tune our services.
As of October 2013, we have 21 children in EIP, 10 children in SAP and 6 trainees in YAP. We are continuously grateful for the financial help and support that you have given us to facilitate our work in Wings. We hope that we are able to promote more awareness and to reach out to more families who are in need.
