Mrs Baby has fond memories of working with Peter during his childhood.
Peter Kam, 28, laughs mischievously, as he fondly remembers how she helped him focus, recognising how it enables him today – as Singapore’s Cerebral Palsy football team goalkeeper.
Taking steps together, on and off the field.
As Peter recalls, his early development wasn’t always smooth. “It was hard adapting to my therapy. At first, I could only stand on my tiptoes!”
Mrs Baby shares an old photo of Peter undergoing hydrotherapy.
If you fall, dare to stand up again.”

It takes a Tribe to make a difference.
To help every client go the distance, a team of social service professionals takes every step with them. Mrs Baby explains: “Like Peter, every child works with a rehabilitation team – consisting of a physiotherapist, occupational therapist, speech-language therapist, psychologist and more. They create individual care plans, and set achievable goals.”
Of course, parents have an important role to play in these teams as well. With their support, everyone can reach out to greater possibilities.
Mrs Baby and her colleagues share a close bond - one that helps them to better drive positive change.
A fulfilling career – in more ways than one.
Since joining CPAS more than 28 years ago, Mrs Baby has enjoyed plenty of benefits – through her work, and through her clients. She has experienced outstanding career development, while also seeing her students lead dignified lives. “Now that is the most satisfying feeling. My children’s improvement is my reward!” exclaims Mrs Baby.
“Today, I feel like a proud grandma of so many children.
They have achieved a lot since I first saw them.”
– Mrs Baby, Senior Physiotherapist (CPAS)
