Who we are

It is our vision to provide world-class services that support individuals with Autism and their families in leading fulfilling lives.

Early Autism Project Malaysia (EAP) is a service provider for individuals with autism. We provide individualized intervention treatment programmes for people on the autism spectrum. Our parent company, Wisconsin Early Autism Project (WEAP) has been providing services for people with autism for the last 20 years in different parts of the USA, Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada, Singapore and Malaysia.

WEAP is Officially Approved by Dr. Lovaas: The Wisconsin Early Autism Project is a Replication Site actively collaborating with Dr. Lovaas’ research through the National Institute of Mental Health. Children treated by WEAP have shown success rates essentially the same as those of Dr. Lovaas. We are proud to be the first program to reach this goal!

EAP has been providing services in Malaysia since 2005. EAP Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. was established in September 2006 and the first early intervention centre in our company’s history, Stepping Stones Centre was established in 2009.

EAP’s Treatment Philosophies

  • Child Centric: At the heart of all we do are our children. Our programme is personalised to each child maximising their strengths.
  • Empower: We recognise the challenges dotting the journey of autism and believe in providing our children and families with the tools to lead fulfilling lives.
  • Inclusion: We believe that every child matters and have the right to natural experiences of life such as school. EAP therefore strives to cultivate an inclusive environment, society, and culture.
  • Partnership: The whole is a sum of its parts. EAP believes in working in partnership with families and professionals to achieve the best possible outcomes.
  • Fun, Play, Creativity: To be a child is to have fun. We continually strive to ensure that our children’s learning is filled with smiles, laughter and joy.
  • Leaders: EAP is committed to developing and empowering future leaders in the field of autism, leaders who will walk this journey with children with autism and their families.
  • World Class Services: To honour our children to us means to continuously provide a quality service driven in excellence.

Why EAP?

Research

All our programmes are organised and facilitated according to same principles and guidelines found in WEAP’s research. Dr. Glen Sallows (founder and owner of WEAP) trained directly with Dr. Ivar Lovaas at UCLA. He then replicated Dr. Lovaas’ research in Wisconsin. His 4-year research study at WEAP showed the same successful results as Dr. Lovaas and was published in the November 2005 issue of the American Journal of Mental Retardation.

Expertise

Every programme at EAP is individualised and supervised by a trained clinician. This clinician needs to fulfill at least 1000 to 2000 one-to-one therapy hours before going through a 16-week training syllabus from WEAP. Ongoing supervision is provided by a Senior Supervisor as well as by a WEAP Senior Supervisor.

Experience

Every fortnight, the clinicians at EAP have a clinic meeting to discuss ideas and troubleshoot difficulties that a child may have. Therefore there is a team of professionals supporting your child’s programme. Since 2005, EAP has impacted hundreds of families in this region. In addition we are continuously trained and supported by WEAP who has well over 20 years of experience and has impacted thousands of families all over the world.
