Central Student Support and Counselling Services
Endeavored to promoting the holistic growth of students, FSTE is pleased to establish its new initiatives on student support and counselling services, with a primary focus on Diploma Yi Jin (DYJ). Through provision of professional development programmes and central support services to teachers and students, it is hoped to foster an inclusive learning environment that better caters for the comprehensive needs in the DYJ community.
In light of the increasing number of students with special educational needs (SEN) in recent years, FSTE picked this theme to kick start our central student support services, and has organised a series of teacher- and student-activities since 2016.
Seminar on Handling Special Education Needs (SEN) Cases in Diploma Yi Jin
The seminar serves as a kick start of the new initiative. Special thanks to Ms. Helen Kwok, Counselling Psychologist, Hong Kong Shue Yan University, for providing her valuable insights to over 70 DYJ teachers and administrators, it provided an overview of counselling psychology, new understandings of SEN, with focuses on Dyslexia, Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, and Autism Spectrum Disorder, supported with experiential activities, video, and discussion.
