100 Hows - Navigation Tips Online
Most parents wish to give the best to their children and want them to have the best development. Regular people will not understand the kind of helplessness and anxiety parents experience when their children are being diagnosed with "special needs" and "development disability". To these parents, the waiting time for their children to receive rehabilitation treatment before they can go back to school is unbearably long.
Practical support is very important at this stage. Therefore, our Infant Stimulation and Parent Effectiveness Training Service has launched an internet education service, called the "100 Hows - Navigation Tips Online" for parents. We collected 100 common concerns of parents with special needs children and arranged different professionals to give solutions. We also included articles written by parents from our Chih Ai Parent's Association annual. Aside from providing parents with knowledge at an early stage, we hope to help them learn to face difficulties and anticipate issues when bringing up their special needs children through the experience of others with similar challenges.
"100 Hows" has been uploaded to our website http://www.hkcs.org/cdcb/isp/isp-100how.html in phases since mid-June. We welcome anyone who is interested to take a look.
