The Cerebral Palsy (Spastic) Children’s Association of Penang (CPCAP) is a non-profit organization established in 1962 and dedicated to providing academic, rehabilitation and vocational services for the development of individuals with cerebral palsy irrespective or religion and ethnicity. We focus these services by creating long-term sustainable educational, vocational and rehabilitation programs.We believe that these children have the right to equal opportunity to access quality services. This will empower them by enhancing their abilities and knowledge to be an integral part of inclusive communities where they will lead their lives once they leave this centre.
We provide Special Education, Therapies, Computer Education and Vocational Trainings for them. Special Education is divided into Early Intervention Programme, Preschool and Primary Section. While, Therapies offered are Speech Therapy, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Hydrotherapy. During computer education we train the students to use assistive devices to access computer, learn the basics of ICT, trainings on using word processor, spreadsheet program and presentation software, simple desktop publishing software and internet access. As part of our efforts in preparing the young adults for open employment and sheltered environment we provide trainings in Practical Class and Sheltered Workshop.
