Project Period 計劃期
June 2021 – January 2023
Provision of a comprehensive, integrated and flexible system to support children’s learning
Optimizing learning and teaching for all children
To establish a best practice model of the “Inclusive Quality (IQ) Preschool”, which integrates OPRS and tier 1 service, with top up Preschool Learning Support professional team’s manpower (OT, PT, ST, SCCW, social worker) and the provision of school-based professional support.
Through the close collaboration and exchange with various partners, early childhood teachers become more competent in catering for learner’s diversity to promote effective learning.
3 Key Project Components
Response to Intervention (RTI) Approach is based on the modern learning theory that instruction activities should be based on knowledge of students’ successes or failures on tasks taught. It integrates assessment and intervention within a multi-tier system to maximize student learning and to reduce behavioural problems (Hempenstall, 2012).
This tiered approach allows the intensity of support services to vary accodring to the child’s needs, enabling efiicient use of resources (National Center for Learning Disabilities, 2017).
The nutshell of Collaborative Consultation to Children’s Classrooms (CC2CC) is that children with development disabilities should be given plenty of opportunities and experiences through daily routines and regular activities in their natural environment, to facilitate their acquisition of functional skills which enable them to participate fully in their daily lives.
For children aged under 5 years, their natural environment includes the preschool settings in addition to their home environments.
