A Mother's Wish Gives to Sari Hati School

In July 2018, at the launch of our e-commerce Website, we set a fundraising target of SGD5,000 for effective programmes helping youths and adults with challenging intellectual disabilities requiring lifelong support and their families.

A Free Sharing Session of Strategies and Techniques with Parents of High-Anxiety Autistic Youths and

More than two years ago, Jerome, my partner, and I made the heartbreaking decision to move Sebastien, my autistic son to Bali, after struggling for 5–6 years with his aggression and self-injury, which had turned our waking life into a perpetual crisis. Little would we know that this move would lead to a fortuitous encounter with Dr. Antonio Rinaldi, an Italy-based psychologist, who was holidaying in Bali. His tutelage and guidance shed light into the causes of the growing intensity of Sebastien's meltdowns over time, which had mystified me for years, and introduced me to new insights as to how to better interact with Sebastien and regulate his emotions. Nonetheless, as our family was also go
