IDEAS Autism Centre (IAC) was established in 2012 in Rawang, Selangor, by the Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (IDEAS) Berhad (940689-W) as part of our effort to provide care for those in need, and at the same time to research and develop a sustainable social enterprise model that can be replicated to help underprivileged children.
As a social enterprise, IAC aspires to fulfil our primary objectives in maximising important benefits to society. We believe good quality care should be accessible to everyone and we provide Early Intervention Programmes that serve young children with autism. Early intervention may change the trajectory of a child’s development where they are more likely to have major long-term positive effects on symptoms, helping them assimilate themselves into mainstream primary schools, and for a greater chance, later in life, of living independently and participating in society.
With the generous support we have been receiving from our main partner, Yayasan Sime Darby (YSD), and 25 other organisations, we have been able to provide autistic children from low-income families with quality care, education and therapy services at the centre, allowing parents to remain in or return to employment.
