About PERMATA Kurnia
PERMATA Kurnia is part of the PERMATA programme initiated by YABhg. Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansor. The PERMATA programme is a multi-pronged approach aimed at giving children a head start in life through quality early childhood education and care, as well as identifying and nurturing their different talents to the optimum potential. In line with the Convention on the Rights of a Child, we view all children as precious and no child should be left behind, especially in education.
“The most important thing when your child is showing signs of ASD is to go to the experts and get your child tested. Talk to the experts. Try not to keep it to yourself or you will feel neglected, you will feel like it’s the end of the world. Just go and find some help.”
“Research has shown that the earlier we provide children with intervention the better the outcome will be. We have an ‘Early Intervention’ programme for young children with autism. We will assess them to see what are their strengths and needs and construct an individual education plan for each child.”
“My son started showing signs of ASD when he was two-and-a-half years old. At first I thought that I need to teach my autistic son to understand the world but actually I need to teach the world to understand my autistic son.”
