Occupational Therapist, Rozanna Riback, founded CARE in June 2011 as the realisation of her dream to create a holistic intervention centre dedicated to the therapeutic and developmental needs of children with autism.

CARE is not just a school or a treatment facility; it is a safe haven for kids with autism to feel comfortable, cared for, accepted and empowered. At CARE, we emphasise the ethos of different, not less.

At CARE, they are passionate about teaching our extraordinary kids to do ordinary things
