It takes a village to raise our children with special needs and it takes a country to build the systems and nurture the culture for inclusivity to happen. 

Hence we recognize the value of working collaboratively with our partners who share the same heart for the special needs community and their caregivers. Our partners help lay the seeds of inclusivity at various tiers of our society and are critical to our mission. With them, we can speak in One Voice, and act as One Body.

- Partner us in creating and sharing content that promotes awareness of and advocacy of disability/special needs issues as well as content that helps improve caregiver competency and confidence

- Mutual support of public education and advocacy campaigns

Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore (CPAS)

Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore (CPAS) is dedicated to serving children and adults with cerebral palsy and multiple disabilities. From early intervention, and special education, to vocational training and professional rehabilitation services - our programmes and services are geared towards meeting the developmental needs of children and adults with cerebral palsy and maximising their functional independence.

Rainbow Centre Singapore

In 1986, a task force led by Dr Kenneth Lyen found that more than 150 children with multiple disabilities were not receiving any services. Rainbow Centre Margaret Drive (then known as Margaret Drive Special School) was thus established to provide educational services for these children. The school also took over the Early Intervention Programmme for Infants and Young Children (EIPIC) from MINDS (Movement for the Intellectually Disabled). 

Today, Rainbow Centre serves infants, children and youths with a diverse range of special developmental and learning needs at two campuses – Yishun Park and Margaret Drive. The Rainbow Centre Training and Consultancy (RCTC) was also established in 2000 to provide training to internal and external stakeholders.
