Greetings

Warmest greetings from MINDS Yishun Training & Development Centre! At our centre, we embrace every person’s individuality and cultivate their interests and passion through our robust social and recreational programmes. Our strong partnership with corporates and passionate individuals who are driven to make a difference, has enabled us to create enduring memories and learning experiences within and beyond our centre.

With a focus on developing our client's independent living skills, our curriculum builds on the foundation that they have established in their formative years. To ensure that each and every individual thrive in their learning and development, our multidisciplinary team of Allied Health Professionals provides physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and behaviour and psychological intervention designed for their differentiated needs. Families are also supported by our social workers and caregivers' support programmes.

Embodying the belief that each and every individual has the potential to excel, our care and allied health professionals are committed to developing them into confident, socially conscious, and independent individuals. Our emphasis on taking a person-centred approach encourages every individual to pursue their choice activities while igniting their interest in lifelong learning.

We’d love for you to explore our webpage and be part of our mission to empower persons with special needs and their families to maximise their potential and fulfil their aspirations.

Warmly,
Ms Dorothy Ng Head of Centre, Yishun Training & Development Centre

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.
