Our main school in Kg.Tawas, Ipoh wa started on 3rd November 1966 under the Malaysian Council For Child Welfare Perak. The management changed hands and the School run by the "Society For The Disabled Perak". On 24th May 1980, the Perak Association for Mentally Retarded was formed to manage the school and its activities. In 2001, the name of the Association was changed to "Perak Association for Intellectually Disabled". This was in response to the global reference of the mentally retarded.

At present, there are about 456 intellectually disabled pupils in our schools while 173 intellectually disabled adults registered with our Sheltered Workshops and Sheltered Factory.
