Apart from providing services to children with special needs and their families in Hong Kong, in recent years, the team has also devoted major effort to promoting an exchange of experience and organising training courses for peer professionals in Hong Kong, Macau, Mainland China and Taiwan, with a view to improving rehabilitation services in these places.
The training programmes are delivered by our experienced professional staff and cover topics including speech therapy, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, psychological services, as well as special subjects including autism and sensory integration. Tailored to cater to the specific needs of individuals and groups, the training programmes are conducted in the form of seminars, workshops and attachment to centres. Courses are also offered outside of Hong Kong, with very positive feedback received from participants.
