SAAC aims to provide our students and adult clients with opportunities to gain independence and self-reliance, and learn life skills through our programmes and services.
St. Andrew’s Autism School (SAAS) provides education to students with moderate to high support autism of school-going age (seven to 18 years old). As a special school, it runs programmes catering to its distinct profile of children with autism who are unable to benefit from mainstream schooling. SAAS programmes are geared towards maximising learning and preparing the children and youths with autism for dignified independence.
The school works closely with the Day Activity Centre (DAC) operated by St. Andrew’s Adult Autism Services to align programmes and practices to enable suitable youths to transit to post-school pathways.
At the DAC, adults with autism are introduced to a wider range of vocational and life skills, aimed at encouraging independence, nurturing potential, and maximising the quality of life.
Our family services include: pastoral care and counselling and parent support and networking.
SAAC serves people with autism and their families, regardless of race, religion or creed.
