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.
