We provide free services for Autistic children and their families and our programmes are adopted from REACh Penang. Diagnostic assessment is used to confirm if the Child is autistic and developmental assessment to assess the developmental stages of the child. We provide information on Autism and teaching-learning programme to help autistic child become an accepted members of society. We organized awareness campaign through Cycle for Autism, Light It Up Blue, Lions Run for REACH and fund raising through Carnival Sales, Hawaiian Night and recently REACH Building Fund Charity Night.
