Autism Resource Centre

Aiming to be the best Autism Resource Centre in Singapore!

Our approaches are not just evidenced based. We bring the finest autism resources at our centre to deep dive into the causes of the condition and put together our goals for the child or student with the most up-to-date findings; blending research findings into clinical practice.  You’d think it’s a given with the proliferation of information out there that nothing is a secret anymore. It may surprise you to know that there are so many long-standing myths of autism spectrum disorder that have not altogether been debunked. These include:

  • Children and adults with autism spectrum disorder have poor eye contact;

  • There is a window of opportunity for intervention in young children, after which you would have missed the boat and it is too late to help someone with autism thrive;

  • Autism is a mental health disorder;

  • Individuals with autism are often gifted or can be highly proficient in one specific thing;

  • Individuals with autism would have great difficulty forming relationships

  • Individuals with autism spectrum disorder will be needing a high level / low level of support for the rest of their lives

       And more.

Of lesser known to the public is a plethora of studies that have pointed out that:

  • The sense of self is often impaired in those with autism spectrum disorder

  • It is important to help parents build Episodic Memory in children with an autism spectrum disorder. We are, after all, a summation of our Episodic Memory.

  • Autism spectrum disorder is a breakdown in the ability to process information, whether it’s in non-verbal skills, facial expressions, voice pitch, prosody, and stresses;

  • Slowing down the pace of life and doing what is really helping the child to continually process information would be the priority to help them make connections;

  • The brain has great plasticity to change.
