Autism Resource Centre (Singapore) or ARC(S) is a not-for-profit charity based in Singapore and registered in year 2000. It aspires to be a leading Centre of Excellence for the full spectrum of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) services in Singapore and the rest of Asia, with the mission to help individuals with autism to maximise their potential in life through advocacy and provision of services in education, employment and empowering of family caregivers/ professionals.On 20 November 2017, SUSS signed an MOU with ARC(S), signifying the continuation of a strategic partnership that had begun in 2014. SUSS and ARC(S) will collaborate on activities that will enhance the quality of learning and teaching, not just for individuals with special needs, but also the community-at-large. One of the initiatives to be launched under this MOU is the development of the ‘Learn for Life e-Campus’ online platform, which enables special-needs learners to acquire important life skills that are critical to the quality of their lives. Other scopes of collaboration will include delivering e-learning courses and resources on autism for the general public; and internship opportunities for SUSS students with special schools to gain a better understanding of special education needs and support.
Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) and its partner organisations will be offering 14 free online courses on SUSS’s UniLEARN platform, an e-learning initiative by SUSS for the community.
