HEAR WHAT THEY SAY

MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL

“We often say that low vision care is about rehabilitation and finding new ways to do routine tasks. But iC2 goes beyond that. For the professionals at iC2, a holistic approach and integration is key. The vision programmes here are aimed at not just rehabilitating children but also helping them integrate with society.”

Prof Wong Tien Yin, Medical Director, Singapore National Eye Centre

OUR STUDENTS

“iC2 PrepHouse is the proverbial elbow for the visually impaired to hold on to. There, people are given a chance to try, a chance to learn and a chance to succeed. Not being able to see like everyone else can does not mean that I lack a future. I just have to work a little harder, and iC2 PrepHouse helps me make sure that I can do that. After all, iC a future for myself 2.”

VALIDATION BY NCSS

triangle_lightBlue

Currently a full member of the National Council of Social Service (NCSS), iC2 PrepHouse Limited (iC2) had partnered NCSS from October 2011 when NCSS first funded iC2.

With education featuring high in its service mission, iC2 approached NCSS and shared its vision to pioneer a service for students with visual impairment who attend mainstream schools.

In 2012, iC2 started the Vision Education and Rehabilitation Programme, which provided specialised services for students with visual impairment and aimed to instil in them the confidence to live in a sighted community.

These are life skills that are still applicable even after the students enter adulthood and leave the school environment. iC2 also provides school support services – sharing know-how with teachers and staff on the needs of students with regard to integration, use of assistive devices and examination support… [read more]
