Training & Consultancy

WeCAN is the top autism-training provider in Asia. Since its inception in year 2000, we have offered more than 20,000 training seats to professionals, families, and organisations.

WeCAN training programmes are available in many user-friendly formats. There are three-hour, half day or full day formats in the form of lectures, workshops, application forums and learning circles, depending on the target audience and subject matter.

Our consultants come with a wealth of local and overseas hands-on and academic credentials. Within EIP the focus for consultants has been on developing practical outcomes that directly affect key members of the autism community - namely the individual with autism, their carers and the professional team.


Operating System

WeCAN Early Intervention Programme has developed a scalable operating model inclusive of:

  • Human Resource management (staff organisation, ratios, job scopes, key performance indicators, orientation, competency standards)
  • Financial (budget, set-up costs, programme fees)
  • Physical Set-up (construction of the building, physical set-up, furniture & equipment)
  • Operating Schedules
  • Communications (internal & external)

Intervention Processes

WeCAN Early Intervention services were developed to meet the challenge of supporting and teaching young children with autism with different skills, abilities and needs.

Base School

The WeCAN Early Intervention Programme (WeCAN EIP) runs a base school at 5 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 10.

Housed together with the Autism Resource Centre (Singapore)'s other services, the base school functions as a laboratory training centre both for teachers, parents and children with autism.

The aim is to develop a scalable curriculum that can be used by young children with autism in Singapore and beyond.



WeCAN EIP achieved The National Autistic Society's (NAS) Accreditation status since 2009, the first Asian centre to do so outside of the European region. To gain accreditation, WeCAN EIP agreed to undertake rigorous development in core and specialist standards in autism early intervention, based on international standards.

WeCAN EIP continoues to work towards regular re-accreditation with the routine involvement of intervention staff, carers, and leadership support from Autism Resource Centre (Singapore).
