About Us

The Spastic Children's Association of Selangor & Federal Territory (SCAS&FT) was established in 1960.

SCAS&FT is a non-profit welfare based organization with the vision to improve the quality of life for children with Cerebral Palsy through education and rehabilitation programmes.

Royal Patron
The Sultan of Selangor Darul Ehsan Duli Yang Maha Mulia Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah Alhaj Ibni Almarhum Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Sha Alhaj is the Royal Patron of the Association.


Management
The Association has 13 Board Members. The day to day office administration and operations are headed by the President, Dato' Seri Langat Diraja Selangor, (Dr) Lam Peng Chong, JP, supported by a staff force of about 40.


Our Services
The Spastic Children's Association of Selangor & Federal Territory offers life-long FREE support to children with Cerebral Palsy through various services and programmes. The Association manages a Centre which comprises a Special Education School, Vocational Training, a Sheltered Workshop and a Rehabilitation Centre.

The School section carries out both teaching and extra curricular activities including sport, music, outing, horse riding, art and craft. Children with Cerebral Palsy are encouraged to be admitted at an early stage to the Early Intervention Program (Pre-School) learning elementary academics and also attend regular therapy sessions.

The Special Education School is divided into two categories. Children who are academically inclined are taught the mainstream curriculum while others are taught a special curriculum tailored to suit the individual's needs and abilities with special emphasis on functional skills.

Children who are placed in Vocational Classes are taught basic independent, social and living skills. We have a Sheltered Workshop where the students do cross-stitch, bookmarks, greeting cards, and also do packing kind of activity e.g. packing of gloves, for which they are paid a token sum as an allowance. Such activities will qualify them to be recognised as "workman" and be entitled to a monthly "OKU Workman's Allowance" of RM350.00 from the Welfare Department of the Government.

The Rehabilitation Centre provides a comprehensive range of treatments covering physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy & hydrotherapy to the children with Cerebral Palsy at the school as well as provides out-patient services to the children who are unable to enrol full time at our centre.


Funding
The running of the Association depends heavily on donations and contributions of the generous public with minimal support from the Government. Most of our funds are through fund raising activities to finance the Association to cover our annual expenditure of RM2 million.

Disorders and disabilities of CP are caused by abnormalities or damage to the developing brain, either at birth or early childhood.
