Who are we

PERKOBP has its origin as an informal support group formed in early 1992 by a group of parents who were concerned with the welfare of their children with learning difficulties. At that time, about 25 families took turns to meet in their homes to discuss the needs of their teenage children who had just completed various training programmes. There were no further services available for them nor could they hold a job because of their learning difficulties. The group got itself registered with the ROS as a society on 20th Nov 1993.

Currently, they have about 300 members. Membership is open to parents/guardians of persons with learning difficulties. Membership form can be obtained from Mr Chng Cheng Hui or Ms Ho Lin Mur at the centre at 6th mile Jalan Puchong or you may write to their registered address PERKOBP No: 44, Jalan Hujan Bubuk 2, Taman Overseas Union, 58200, Kuala Lumpur.

Registration fee is RM5.00. Annual membership fee is RM20.00

The Society is managed by a seven-member executive committee which comprises The President, Vice President, Hon. Secretary, Hon. Assistant Secretary, Hon. Treasurer and 2 committee members.
