PEP - 3 (Chinese Edition – Revised)  with CD-ROM

PEP - 3 (Chinese Edition – Revised) with CD-ROM

The Chinese Edition of Psychoeducational Profile - Third Edition (hereinafter named as CPEP-3) is translated from the original PEP-3 published by the Division TEACCH of the University of North Carolina in the U.S. PEP-3 is the assessment tool of the TEACCH (Treatment and Education of Autistic and related Communication handicapped CHildren) model which has received worldwide recognition as one the most effective training models for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.   PEP-3 not only includes items for professional assessment, but also incorporated “Caregiver Report” to give a full view of children with autism to trainers. In the Chinese edition, Heep Hong has made reference and adjustment to fit the Chinese culture and unique characteristics of the Chinese population. Since its publication, CPEP-3 has been very popular among the rehabilitation and special education sector in Mainland China, Taiwan, and other Chinese communities. Heep Hong has conducted a reliability and validity study on the CPEP-3, and proved it to be a reliable and valid assessment tool that is suitable for Chinese autistic children. Through the study, we have established for the first time a Chinese norm for children with autism and normal development. These data enable practitioners in Chinese communities to more accurately analyze individual child’s behavior and development. The result of the study has been included in the CPEP - 3 – Revised Version. In this revised version, we have also enhanced the scoring CD, which helps user to calculate the assessment scores and, based on which, a list of suggested training objectives is provided. The user can then consult our newly published “Training Package for Autistic Children (New Edition)” to formulate the training plans with training objectives and activities for the children.  The CPEP - 3 - Revised Version includes a package of Examiner’s Manual, Guide to Item Administration, Picture Book, Caregiver Report, Examiner Scoring and Summary Booklet and Response Booklet as well as a scoring CD plus a full set of assessment tools.

SCERTS Model Implementation Guide

SCERTS Model Implementation Guide

Heep Hong Society introduced the SCERTS (Social Communication, Emotional Regulation, Transactional Support) Model for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) from the US to Hong Kong in 2011 and has since then developed adjustments to maximise its benefits for local children. The model has three major features: (1) it helps children with ASD to improve their motivation for communication and socialising; (2) enhances their problem-solving and emotional regulation competences; and (3) emphasises the importance of transactional support provided by the multi-disciplinary team and parents. The SCERTS Team of the Society published the SCERTS Model Implementation Guide to facilitate professionals and parents in grasping the specific strategies to help children with ASD. Chapter 1 explains the principles and theory of the SCERTS Model; Chapter 2 provides step-by-step guidelines in applying the SCERTS Model in local settings through three case studies. A complimentary DVD of practical training materials (e.g. emotion cue cards, animation, waiting spinner, timetable and general regulation tips) is included. For better training, trainers can use the Guide with the free ‘Social Emotion’ iPad and Android app. This book was sponsored by the Partnership Fund for the Disadvantaged.
