Founders & Milestones of Qamara Centre

Qamara Therapy and Special Education Centre is the brainchild of Mrs. Sufaini Bidin and her husband, Mr. Army Rosdi bin Abdul Razak. Unable to find a suitable program for their own daughter in 2012, they decided to open a new early intervention centre, not just for their own daughter, but for other children with autism and other learning disabilities. They believe that with proper early intervention, these children will be able to fully integrate in the community as their potentials are unleashed by the therapists at the centre. Therefore, Qamara Therapy and Special Education Centre was established in 2012.

Occupational therapy and speech therapy are the key components in Qamara’s Early Intervention Program. The therapists will address the functional needs and treat each child with adaptive development, adaptive behaviour, play, sensory, motor and postural development.

The Qamara’s Advanced Learning Program (QALP) is designed to assist children with autism and other special needs who are not eligible for mainstream education. The program has two main objectives. The first objective is to promote self-determination and foster independence in children with autism and special needs. The second objective is to support them to grasp the 3R (reading, writing and arithmetics) skills. QALP also provide pre-vocational training to prepare students for future roles within families and the society.

Qamara marked their third year of establishment by providing Sensory Integration Therapy (SI Therapy) at their second centre, Qamara’s Sensory Therapy and Intervention Centre. SI Therapy is designed to help the children to change the way their brains interpret sensory inputs. It is common for children with autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), cerebral palsy, fetal alcohol syndrome and other learning disabilities to have difficulties in processing sensory information. Qamara aims to fill in the gap in the industry as SI therapy is currently not widely available in Malaysia. Qamara’s Sensory Therapy and Intervention Centre is located at TSB  Sungai Buloh and has been in operation since early 2015.

Qamara strives to provide the best possible services to children and their families. We will guide each families on how to incorporate learning opportunities into their everyday routines as we believe that every moment can be a learning process. At Qamara, parents can find the right support and resources in an effort to enhance their child’s learning and development.
