In August of 1962, with support from the Penang Rotary Club, the Spastic Children’s Association of Penang was established. Initially, it operated out of the St. Andrew Presbyterian Church on Codrington Avenue and later relocated to the residence of the late Mr. Lim Cheng Ean at 67 Northam Road. When it first started, the association provided care for approximately 21 children with Cerebral Palsy.

In 1994, the association underwent a rebranding and adopted the name Cerebral Palsy (Spastic) Children’s Association of Penang. Currently, it is situated on a 1.7-acre piece of land at 425, Jalan Masjid Negeri, 11600 Pulau Pinang, which was generously donated by the late Tan Sri Dato Loh Boon Siew and Lam Wah Ee Trustees.

In the year 2023, the Association made the decision to remove the term ‘spastic’ from its logo. This decision was prompted by the recognition that the word “spastic” has become outdated in everyday English language usage and is now considered inappropriate, except in specific medical contexts. Through this action, the Association aims to promote inclusivity and eliminate any negative associations related to the condition.
