STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS (SEN)

Aims of the Team (2019 - 2020)

  1. Strengthen and improve the supportive measures for catering for the learning diversity of students with special educational needs*
  2. Provide “add-on” intervention to cater for the needs of students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention and Hyperactive Deficit Disorder (ADHD) and Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD)
  3. Foster in and among students cores values of empathy and compassion for others

3-tier Support Model


Among students with the same type of learning difficulty, their needs and the degree of support required may differ from one to another. The team adopts a 3-tier support model to provide appropriate support for students according to their diverse needs. These include classroom adjustments (e.g. seating arrangements, peer support, class visits), individual and group counselling sessions, social service support groups, subject-based support, special examination adjustments (SEA) and individual education plans. It is expected that through various supportive measures, the school can effectively cater for the learning diversity of our students.

Moreover, with the help of the school educational psychologists (Mr. Hung Wai Kuen Rickie and Mr. Wong Pak Ho Bernard), social workers (Ms. Fung Yuen Han Wendy and Mr. Kong Cheuk Kan Cyrus) and the student counsellor (Ms. Wong Shui Pan, Sonia), the team is able to provide one-to-one follow-ups for students with special educational needs. Besides, the team values collaboration with the Guidance Team, the Discipline Team, the Careers Guidance Team, and all form and subject teachers so as to provide comprehensive support for our students.
