My daughter has been behaving very mature...
lately. As soon as I come back home from work, she comes out of her room and says "hello" and even asks me how my day was... In the morning, she says "good morning" and asks me if I had a good sleep. I used to ask her those questions daily and I tell her that I love her ... and now she is saying it back to me! I love the child that my daughter is becoming and she's so pleasant. She has not destroyed anything lately; I must say she is very pleasant, even more so than usual. Thank you" -A parent

autistic child who is known to run away from home. With commitment from its staff and the daily routine established for my son, I was able to spare some time and find a job that now benefits my whole family. Thank you to all the staff at the Moeen Centre." -Appreciative mother
Our family was finding it extremely difficult to...
find a placement for our special child. Most of the institutions refused to take our son due to lack of space and his special condition that required constant supervision. We were very glad when the Moeen Centre and the staff offered their services to look after our child during the day. As a result, my wife was able to help in running our small business, we have less stress and it has made a significant difference in our lives to know that Moeen Centre is around to assist families such as ours.” –Parents of a Special Child

My daughter has been attending the Moeen Centre ...
since the beginning of the school year. She has adjusted well and I am pleased with the progress reports that describe the daily with activities that have taken place. I would like to see more activities like learning to take public transportation. This will help her to get acquainted with her surroundings. I would also like to see more students at the school which will allow her to be more social. Interacting with others will build her vocabulary and self-esteem. I learned about Moeen Centre from my local newspaper and not the government agency where I get my subsidy from. A lot more exposure is needed by government departments who supply funding for special needs program.” – Email from a mother

delayed. He joined the Moeen Centre during March Break and the Summer Holidays. He liked the time he spent there and was very happy. It was very helpful for me when he attended the day program at the Moeen Centre as it freed up my time to carry on other family responsibilities. The Moeen Centre staff went out of their way and also offered to transport my son to the Centre. Thank you.” –Grateful father
