Adaptation Measures

Teaching

Student Support Team sends the SEN student list to all relevant teaching staff through emails in September every year. The Student Support Information Booklet will also be uploaded to the website in order to facilitate different counseling strategies.

Student Support Team recommends the promotional arrangement of SEN students to the Academic Board in June every year. This is base on students’ academic achievement and parents’ desire. Priority on the arrangement of classes depends on the connectivity with the teachers in the SEN team.

Pull-out Counseling

Part of the supporting services will be arranged within regular lesson time, for example, the speech therapy service. Students who need those services may be pulled out from the regular lessons.

After-lesson Counseling Service

This counseling service will be divided into homework support team and individual counseling team. They will be conducted in Student Support Activity Room and normal classrooms.

Assessment

Special arrangement on tests and exams will be arranged according to the regulations set by the Hong Kong Examinations Authority.
