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.
