Services for Students with Special Educational Needs

Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui Walk with Love Project

 

Starting from 2015, the Welfare Council has been subvented by the Social Welfare Department (SWD) to launch the On-site Pre-school Rehabilitation Services (the Services). We are serving children with special needs who are studying in the 53 participating kindergartens (KGs) or kindergarten-cum-child care centres (KG-cum-CCCs) in Hong Kong, their parents and teachers.
 
Who we serve

  1. Children who are attending at the participating KGs or KG-cum-CCCs and are on the waiting list for SWD-subvented pre-school rehabilitation services;
  2. Children who are on the waiting list for assessment from Child Assessment Centres under Department of Health or Hospital Authority (when our service team has service quota to provide services for these children but the number of these children served must not be more than 10% of the total number of children served by our team);
  3. Teachers/child care workers and parents/carers of such children.

Features

A Multi-disciplinary Team

Our service team comprises occupational therapists, speech therapists, physiotherapists, clinical psychologists, registered social workers and special child care workers. The team works together to make tailor-made individual training plans for children.

 

Case Coordination

The case manager follows up the training progress of children and formulates individual training plans.

 

On-site Support Services

Therapists and special child care workers provide on-site training for children, together with classroom management strategies, to strengthen support for children at school.

 

Centre-based Support Services

In order to enhance the effectiveness of training, we provide centre-based professional training facilities to address the training needs of children.

 

Application

For children who are applying for SWD-subvented pre-school rehabilitation services:  

After assessment by a pediatrician, psychologist, or other qualified professionals recognised by Social Welfare Department, referrals can be made by family caseworkers or medical social workers or any social workers in casework service setting to the Central Referral System for Rehabilitation Services of the Social Welfare Department.  

 

For children who are on the waiting list for assessment from Child Assessment Centres under Department of Health or Hospital Authority:  

These children will only be served when our service team has service quota and the number of these children served must not be more than 10% of the total number of children served by our team. Applicants must complete and submit in person the application form, together with the copies of the relevant documents, to our office. 

 

Withdrawal

Parents can withdraw from the Services for their children and have to notify our service team and deal with the relevant withdrawal procedure at least one month in advance. On the other hand, our service team will withdraw children from the Services or refer children to other services in the following circumstances, whichever is earlier:

  • The Services will be provided to the child until 31st August of that academic year after he/she reaches the age of six;
  • When the child is admitted as a Primary One student;
  • When the child accepts the training subsidy/the subvented pre-school rehabilitation services assigned by CRSRehab-PS;
  • When the child no longer has service needs after assessed by our multi-disciplinary team;
  • When the child no longer studies at the participating KGs or KG-cum-CCCs;
  • When the child is not on the waiting list for SWD-subvented pre-school rehabilitation services or Child Assessment Centres.
