Since young, Amsyar experienced delayed motor development, a result of being diagnosed with spastic diplegia at birth as he was born prematurely at 32 weeks. In Amsyar’s early years, he had difficulties standing, walking and communicating.
His parents enrolled him in Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore (CPAS) School, and it was a turning point for Amsyar. His speech, mobility, writing and texting skills improved tremendously due to the support provided by trained Teachers,Speech & Language Therapists, Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists. His mobility skills improved from using a kaye walker to walking independently, and gaining the ability to converse in public further elevated his confidence. Now, Amsyar enjoys helping his teachers, from running errands for school staff to pushing his classmates on wheelchairs.
He is brimming with potential and Amsyar’s parents and teachers are confident that with the continued support from the community, Amsyar would eventually be able to commute independently and secure a suitable job upon graduation from school.
