In 1986, The School for the Deaf, Tawau was established by the Basel Christian Church of Tawau, under the consultancy of a Special Education Coordinator from Kuala Lumpur, Mr. Tan Yap. At this time, the center served only hearing impaired students, and was less then half of its current size.
In 1989, Persatuan Untuk Orang Pekak, Tawau took over the administration from the Basel Christian Church and began implementing “Queued Speech” courses for the public on a regular basis.
In 1994 due to the generous patronage of Mr. Teo Soon Seng, PUOP expanded its services to begin education and caring for students who are intellectually and physically challenged.
Today, our main objective is to provide education for those who have missed out from the government education system. We currently have 4 sections of our centre: Function Living Skills, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Deaf Education, and Sensory Inegration and Rehabilitation, and employ around 30 individuals from the local community as teachers, teaching assistants, and administration.
The Mission of Persuatan Untuk Orang Pekak Tawau is to care for and educate children who are deaf or differently abled. We strive to teach children practical living skills, and empower them through knowledge and respect.
