lead image

Here is a list of schools for autistic children in Singapore. These schools provide therapy and educational support for children with special needs...

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder of the brain that affects how a person communicates, relates and interacts with other people.

Apparently, 1 in 150 children In Singapore are on the autism spectrum, even higher than the World Health Organisation’s global figure of 1 in 160 children.

Autism can usually be detected when a child is between 2 - 3 years old. It can sometimes even be detected in children 18 months or younger. In Singapore, a definitive diagnosis of autism is made when the child is around 3 years old. 

A general developmental screening test is conducted in the first visit by a multidisciplinary team of specialists. Your child may be called in for subsequent assessments by developmental paediatricians and allied health professionals (e.g. psychologists) if further psychological or diagnostic evaluations are required.
