We are very glad to be able to organise this meaningful forum together with the Paediatrics Department of Taiping Hospital. We thank Panorama Hotel for fully sponsoring the event and providing us a nice high tea and also thank Crafting Music for sponsoring two beautiful banners.
The forum started with a talk by Dr. Saiful, the head of department, who touched on the topic of types of disabilities and treatments. He gave a lot of information. Stephen Chow then shared on ESDA social services especially Therapy Class for children with disabilities. He also shared his personal story as a disabled person. The last speaker was Ms. Dinah Redmond who touched on the benefits of horse riding therapy for disabled people. At 12.00 noon we had a Q&A session. Before we left the place we had a wonderful high tea. The forum ended at 1.30pm.
