Objectives 目的

 

From neuroscience to self-enhancement, Pro-talent strives to bring out the best in SEN children with assessments, training and consultation.

 

慧能培訓協會從音樂培訓至專注神經科學培訓,為SEN兒童提供評估、諮詢及訓練,讓他們一展所長。

Beneficiaries 受惠對象

SEN children and their parents

有特別學習需要,包括自閉、專注力不足/過度活躍、讀寫困難的學童及其父母

Social Impact 社會效益

 

For the past few years, Pro-Talent has served nearly 200 SEN children with their clinical neuropsychology service, individual and group-based training. Teachers and parents alike reflect that the kids have improved significantly in terms of attention, self-control, self-confidence and social communication. Many become capable of handling academic requirements in mainstream schools.

Among them, a 6-year-old child with ASD and moderate grade mental disabilities exhibits 26 times longer attention span following 9 months of clinical training. With 6 months of training, another 6-year-old child with dyslexia and ASD has made a huge leap from 0 to over 80 marks in dictation. Pro-talent is actively getting in touch with more primary schools to offer their service.

 

在受資助期間,慧能培訓協會為超過70名有特別學習需要的學童提供腦神經心理學培訓、個人音樂班和校本音樂培訓班。根據老師及家長的反映,參與學生在認知功能、社交、行為表現、自信方面都有所改進,並對音樂增加興趣。

有6歲自閉症小朋友接受5個月臨床訓練之後,專注力由最多1分鐘,提升至7分鐘,與人對話時,眼神交流由持續1至3秒,增加至最少10秒。另外一名6歲小二學生,經診斷為讀寫障礙及自閉症,接受6個月臨床訓練後,中英文默書均大有進步。協會將會繼續接觸其他小學,令更多合適對象受惠。
