Looking for volunteers to engage with Special Needs Students through Sports/Outdoor activities.

Detailed description


Conducting sports and outdoor activities with individuals with special needs can be a rewarding and inclusive experience.


The activity will be conducted over a period of 3 months, with regular weekly sessions to conduct sports/outdoor activities. Liaise closely with the management to understand more about planning the sports/outdoor activities.


A volunteer is required to

  • Guide the special needs individuals, by breaking down step-by-step into smaller components through the sports/outdoor activities
  • There will be obstacles (such as tantrums, meltdowns, and hyporesponsive- all would be briefed by the centre coordinator).
  • Keep in mind their sensory experiences towards their surroundings.
  • Would need to use a visual aid to provide them with a better understanding of the sports/outdoor activities- can refer to the activity coordinator.
  • Plan the type of sports/outdoor activity that you want to carry out. You can explore different types of activities that are doable for the students.


  • Passionate in the special needs field.
  • Very patient and empathetic.
  • Organised and goal-oriented.
  • Adaptable and flexible on plan changes.

Remember to prioritize safety, enjoyment, and inclusivity throughout the sports and outdoor activities. By creating an inclusive environment and providing appropriate adaptations and support, you can facilitate a positive and rewarding experience for individuals with special needs.

About IMPIAN - Institut Masalah Pembelajaran & Autisme Malaysia

Who are we

IMPIAN, a Training Centre for children with Learning Disability and Autism was established in 1998 by two professionals, Y.Bhg. Datin Dr K Mangalaveni (Medical Practitioner) and Y.Bhg.Prof.Dr Zasmani Shafiee (Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist).

The purpose of setting up IMPIAN was the realisation to assist and provide opportunities for developing these special children’s potential in the real world. Among the programmes designed in IMPIAN are Early Intervention, Junior, Senior and Adult Programmes with Functional Academics and Vocational Programmes, Sheltered Workshop and Job Training. Other supplementary and support programmes include Occupational, Speech Therapy, Art, Music and Performing Arts and other Specialised Programmes.

Our needs
IMPIAN has obtained a JKM (Welfare Department) license (W/PJH OKU 001/2011) to operate Pusat Jagaan IMPIAN a training centre for Special Children. To have a continuous and holistic program operational that can provide proper vocational trainings, we do hope for support from the private sector and the public in our fundraising and charitable activities.

Our services
We cater to a wide variety of students with various learning disabilities such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, and Attention Deficient Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD). We provide services and activities that greatly benefit the growth of children with special needs which are Occupational therapy, Physiotherapy, Sensory Integration Room and a Music Corner.

We are a non-profitable centre, solely depending on student fees and support from private sectors and the public in donations, sponsorships and volunteers, to conduct continuous and holistic programs for the students at IMPIAN whose ages range from 3 years to adults.
