The Social Welfare Department has launched a Pilot Scheme on On-site Pre-school Rehabilitation Services through the Lotteries Fund in the fourth quarter of 2015. Under the Pilot Scheme, multi-disciplinary service teams from the non-governmental organizations will offer on-site services to participating kindergartens (KGs) and kindergarten-cum-child care centers (KG-cum-CCCs) to provide early intervention to children who are on the waiting list for SWD-subvented pre-school rehabilitation services. It will also provide professional advice for kindergarten teachers/ child care workers to assist them in working with children with special needs, and render support to the parents. In response to the policy, Yan Chai Hospital Preschool Support Team has established 1 service team in December 2015, with the capacity of 100.
Children attending the participating KGs or KG-cum-CCCs who are on the waiting list for SWD-subvented pre-school rehabilitation services; and teachers/ child care workers and parents/ carers of such children.
The services will mainly be conducted on-site at nursery schools and kindergartens so that children learn in their most familiar environment. However, on need basis, some of the training will be conducted at our 2 supporting centers, most of them are equipped with Sensory Integration Room, Room for Physiotherapy, Room for Occupational Therapy , Room for Speech Therapy, Training Room, Library Corner, Disabled toilet, and Children Toilet
