“Why do we not have just one, but two autistic children?”
It was a double whammy for Victor Tan and his wife June when both their sons, Royce and Dylan were diagnosed with autism at the age of three. It took them some time to accept the hard reality. They read up profusely to search for answers as well as turned to religion to seek comfort.
Taking care of two children with special needs is no mean feat. “It requires a lot of energy to teach them one simple thing, it is beyond one’s imagination”, says Victor Tan.
Royce is 18 and Dylan is 17 this year, and to Victor and June, the most difficult period of parenthood was over. Speaking on their biggest wish, “I just want them to live happily for the rest of their lives”, says Victor Tan.
Live Your Dream host Ken Low visits the Tan family and realises Royce is a huge aviation enthusiast. He contacts Singapore Youth Flying Club to explore options of bringing Royce closer to his aviation dream. Watch episode five and see the family’s experience at Singapore Youth Flying Club.
Watch till the end, where host Ken revisits the Tan family with a heart-warming surprise.
