“It can be a very scary and anxious time. For adults, after special education, they may not be working. They and their families are at a loss,” says Mr Marcel Semaun, head of adult autism services at St Andrew’s Autism Centre.

 

Says Ms Denise Phua, president of Autism Resource Centre (Singapore): “The support systems and programmes for children and youths with autism have improved tremendously compared with 10 years ago. There has been an increasing number of early intervention centres and special schools for children and youths with autism. In comparison, for adults with moderate to severe autism, for example, there are only three day activity centres in Singapore. There is a need for residential care models for adults with autism with ageing or deceased parents.”
