Greetings

MINDS’ 6th Training & Development Centres (JTDC) offers services that cater to the needs of adults (19 years old and above) with intellectual disability. We focus on programmes that allow the adult client to acquire and gain greater independence in daily living skills such as personal grooming & hygiene, toileting, social functioning, work readiness skills, domestic skills, and adaptive behaviours.

The core focus of our service is to promote social integration into communities, so as to enable them to lead a meaningfully engaged life. Our Training Officers work closely with a multidisciplinary team of allied health professionals to regulate behaviours and improve independent living skills, promoting inclusion by society.

At JTDC, we believe every client deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best they can possibly be. We look beyond their disabilities, focus on their capabilities, and work hard to expand the possibilities.
Ms Sharofah Binte Ahmad Sarwan Head of Centre, Jurong Training & Development Centre

About Us

How We Began
How We Began
MINDS Jurong Training & Development Centre (JTDC) was officially opened by Mr Tan Chuan-Jin, Minister for Social & Family Development, on 22 March 2017 to serve our clients in the western parts of Singapore. The opening of JTDC was instrumental in alleviating the pressures of the growing wait list for day activity spaces in the west. It was also the first day activity centre serving persons with intellectual disability situated in an industrial estate – Tradehub 21.
Whom We Serve
Whom We Serve
We provide services for adults with intellectual disabilities who require a higher level of support, or have a greater degree of special needs that require continuous specialised help. Our centre-based service offers respite care for caregivers by relieving them of their usual caregiving duties and allowing them to focus on other responsibilities.
What We Offer
What We Offer
With a focus on developing their independent living skills, our programme builds on the foundation adults with special needs have established in their formative years while enhancing their emotional and physical well-being through providing professional care by our Allied Health Professional team.
