WELCOME TO THE
Formerly known as Spastic Children’s Association of Singapore, the Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore (CPAS), was established in 1957 to provide persons with Cerebral Palsy and multiple disabilities with early intervention, special education, rehabilitation services, day activity centre programmes, vocational training and gainful employment in Singapore.
Cerebral (brain) Palsy (lack of muscle control) is an inclusive term to describe a group of non-progressive disorders occuring in young children in which injury to the brain causes impairment of motor function. The degree of the disabilities range from extreme tightness or looseness of the body muscles, improper head, shoulder or hip control to speech impairment. Cerebral Palsy is not curable. This can occour during pregnancy, at birth, or in the early years of the child due to illness or injury to the brain.
