Who are we

New Horizons was birthed as a result of the coming together of a group of like-minded individuals who saw a great need to provide practical help to an ever increasing number of children with learning disabilities. The Canning Garden EIP Centre opened in March 1995, providing an “early intervention programme” (or EIP) for children aged 6 months to 6 years old. Subsequently, the programme expanded to cater to young ‘home-based’ children who could not attend lessons at the centre due to various circumstances. Due to the high demand for services and long waiting list for places, the Pengkalan EIP Centre was started in July 2003. Subsequently, the third centre, the CHILD EIP Centre was opened in Taiping, Perak, in June 2010.

Our services

All services provided are based on needs; no distinction is made based on sex, race, religion or financial background. There are no fees payable, only free-will donations from the families involved.

New Horizons Society, being a non-profit service-provider NGO, is entirely dependent on public donations to fund its programs. To prevent sudden stoppage of services due to a lack of incoming funds in unforeseen circumstances, New Horizons Society practices prudent financial management with a healthy spread between spending and saving.

The core service of New Horizons is to provide the Early Intervention Programme (EIP) to children with learning disabilities, mostly with autistic or Down –syndrome backgrounds. The EIP seeks to instill a broad range of skills over time : academic learning, self-help & living skills, behaviour modification, counselling for affected families, etc. To date, 350 children with learning disabilities have gone through and benefited from the EIP, with most of them in the program for 5 to 10 years.
