If you are not a teacher, staff, or social worker at a school and want to refer a child to the SEN Centre or school, please dial +852 9682-3100 and talk to our counsellors on Call Mira, who can assist.
57% of ethnic minorities with Special Educational Needs (SEN) drop out of school between primary and secondary levels. Non-Chinese Speaking (NCS) youth with SEN are a minority group within a minority group and have historically been ignored by the education system in Hong Kong.
Ethnic minority families with SEN children lack support. They face several obstacles ranging from long waiting times for clinical assessments, language barriers, insufficient therapy support, and lack of affordable private practitioners. Parents do not know how best to support their children at home.
