The Itinerant Support Service (ISS) serves students with hearing loss (who are Singaporean citizens or Permanent Residents) in mainstream schools. To achieve better integration of students with hearing loss into schools and the community, we work with their families, schools and the community.
We empower families with the appropriate skills and knowledge to nurture their children with hearing loss, so that they will gain confidence, independence and are better integrated into society. We also strive to increase awareness and acceptance of the public on the capabilities and potential of individuals with hearing loss. In addition, ISS organizes other activities such as WOW! Camp, talks, workshops and other school holiday programmes.
Our social workers and case managers provide services such as information and referral, case management, counselling, financial assistance and also make school visits.
