ADULT ENHANCEMENT PROGRAMME (AEP)
The AEP is an existing skills-enhancement programme run by DSA for persons with Down Syndrome and/or Intellectual Disability aged 18 years and above.
The programme accepts those who have completed schooling and have made the choice to enrol in the AEP. The AEP adopts a person- and family-centred model in delivering a programme focused on functional life-skills. It takes into consideration the attained development stages of each adult learner and their aspirations.
As personal development occurs in a continuum, each adult learner gains knowledge and learns skills that enable them to function optimally with minimal dependence on family and society.
The AEP is a one-stop transitional programme that provides a spectrum of services including:
- self-management of personal needs
- essential skills for daily living (e.g. food preparation, money management, independent travel, etc.)
- securing and sustaining employment
- social inclusion
- talent development through art and craft
The design of the programme takes into account the maturity and developmental growth of the individual adult learner in achieving their potential for a better quality of life.
