Metta Day Activity Centre for the Intellectually Disabled

The Metta Day Activity Centre for the Intellectually Disabled was established in January 1995 to promote quality of life for needy individuals with intellectual disabilities.

Partially funded by the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) and National Council of Social Service (NCSS), our day care services cater for beneficiaries aged between 18 and 55 from various races and religions, who are diagnosed with intellectual impairment such as Down’s Syndrome, autism and developmental delay.

Such disorders often result in co-occurring conditions like impairment in adaptive functioning, which impede their communication, self-care and cognitive learning abilities.

Designed to help our beneficiaries achieve maximum gains in their abilities, individual care plans are developed to formulate client-centric programmes that enhance their existing and latent capabilities.

Detailing specific interventions that address the needs and challenges unique to their disability profiles, these plans are executed via a comprehensive training curriculum, covering areas such as activities of daily living and community living skills.

The former promote their mastery of self-help skills, while the latter enable them to function adequately at home and in the community.

Measurable goals and objectives are determined regularly to define realistic standards and targets for subsequent evaluations of their progress. To ensure that they are well on track, we monitor and record their developments daily.
