Bukit Aman plans to expand development of autism centre, says IGP

KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Aman aims to carry out more development of the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) / Pengaman Autism Centre in stages, says Tan Sri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani.

The Inspector-General of Police said the future development of the centre will depend on the facilities and financial capabilities.

“At the moment, the centre has 23 autistic students, but there are many parents still waiting to enrol their children here.

“Since the centre began operations last year, it has been our goal to improve and expand the centre to accommodate more students and teachers. But it will depend on financial capabilities and the facilities here,” he told reporters after attending the Autistic Students Early Education and Skills programme on Wednesday (Jan 12) at the centre.

During the event, Yayasan Bank Rakyat presented the centre with a RM100,000 donation for the programme.

Acryl Sani said the centre appreciated the donation as running the centre involved a high cost.

“We hope it can help in alleviating the financial and administrative burden faced by the centre’s management,” he added.

Yayasan Bank Rakyat chairman Datuk Megat Zulkarnain Omardin said the foundation was committed to assisting the centre.

“We hope to make the centre our ‘anak angkat’ (foster child) and continue to support it.

“We hope the assistance will give some element of joy for the autistic children in their daily lives and we hope they can learn something new,” he said.

The programme is aimed at creating more awareness and to focus on intervention for those with autism to receive education similar to other children, he added.

“We hope more such programmes will be conducted in the future as it could inspire other organisations to assist the less fortunate,” he said.
