Day Activity Centres (DACs) provide activities and services to equip adults with disabilities with skills to maximise their independence. These include necessary skills for a transition to workshop employment.
The activities at DACs promote the development of cognitive, social, communication, language, and motor skills. The centres also provide physiotherapy and occupational therapy.
DACs cater to persons between 16 and 55 years old who are unable to take up open employment or attend sheltered workshops. DACs also provide a form of respite for caregivers during working hours.
Our psychologists will be deployed to VWOs running DACs to provide a range of services such as the assessment of clients for behavioural and mental health issues, behavioural support for disabled adults with challenging behaviours, working together and coaching other workers and therapists and supporting the VWO in building a stronger quality-of-life and engagement programmes for the clients.
