Nature of Service
- Professional Counseling Service
Individual counseling services are carried out by our registered social workers and our Society’s educational psychologists who will set up individual work plan for each service user. Regular scheduled interviews are held with each service user and home visit will be arranged for their families.
- Counseling Groups
Besides individual counseling sessions, we held counseling groups to help to meet their needs and cope with underlying problems.
- Developmental Groups and Programmes
To help service user fully realize their full abilities and potential, we frequently organize social and recreational activities such as music and outdoor sports.
- Community Involvement Programmes
Opportunities to participate in community projects and events are constantly presented to our service users to develop new skills, social responsibility and a sense of belonging.
- Parents Training and Family bonding Programmes
We constantly conduct workshops and interest groups for parents as well as family-bonding activities in the aim to engage and work alongside each family to bring about positive changes.
- Personal Competence Enhancing Training
Through individual training, conducted by our social workers and program workers, each service user is taught how to assess one’s own strengths and weaknesses, develop better self-discipline, life and social skills, and learn how to manage one’s emotions and behavior.
The “Volunteer Pilot” team is a part of Volunteers Development Scheme of our Centre. Each team member has to undergo training before being allowed actual volunteer work. Training includes learning interpersonal skills, leadership skills, magic tricks and various performances. Volunteer work at different service units are arranged for those who have completed the training programme. The aim of this scheme is to develop a spirit of benevolence and a sense of social responsibility.
Special Talent Development Scheme
This scheme focuses on extra-curriculum potential such as sports and arts. Service users with potential talents are provided training by a professional in the relevant field and encouraged to take part in open competitions to gain experience. Activities under this scheme include dance, band music, football, lion dancing and many others.
“I Can Fly” Graduate Support Programme
The graduate support programme is a service provided for service users who have successfully graduated or left school. Its purpose is to help them adapt to mainstream school life and providing the necessary support if required. Through this programme, we keep in regular contact with the graduates and their outside responsible social workers to remain updated on the ex-service users’ current situation. Alumni activities and gatherings are constantly often organized.
5-S Principles and Training
5-S® management system is implemented to organize and manage the Centre’s facilities and equipment. We also educate all service users and personnel on the management system and require them to practise the 5-S principles, namely Structurise, Systematise, Sanitise, Standardise and Self-discipline, at all times.
Short-term Modification Programme and Residential Supportive Service
Service users who receive the service of short-term modification programme may retain the school places of their original mainstream school. Our Centre will provide residential support service for them. They may return to their original mainstream school, after significant improvement in their problems has been made, in the period of 6-12 months.
“Happy Families” – Family Support Service
We regularly organize activities for families to participate in. Meetings are also held regularly for parents to come together and discuss parenting issues.
