Professional Development Service

Professional Development Service

Background

SAHK committed to provide quality rehabilitation services for persons with disabilities over the years, and actively engaged in developing innovative and evidence-based rehabilitation strategies. The Association also organises various professional training courses for local and regional rehabilitation personnel to enhance their professional knowledge and clinical skills.

Sensory Integration (SI) therapy has been widely adopted in medically advanced countries for decades. The Association has actively been participating in the development of SI therapy in Hong Kong since 2000. Under such circumstances, SI training rooms have been set up in our pre-school settings, and SI therapy was extensively applied for children with various special needs, such as Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and learning difficulties. In addition, the Association was passionate to promote the knowledge and skill of SI in local and regional practitioners. Hence, renowned overseas SI experts were frequently invited to deliver SI training course in Hong Kong and their knowledgeable presentation greatly appreciated by the participants. In order to further strengthen our in-house development of SI, overseas SI expert, Ms Sheila Frick and Ms Patricia Oetter were invited to be the Honorary Advisor of Association and provide professional advice when needed.

After two decades of development, SI therapy becomes one of the core training strategies for children with special needs and our expertise in these areas was well-recognized in the field. On the other hand, the ever increasing evidence-based research firmly proven the effectiveness of SI therapy, which further turning SI therapy becomes a well-known treatment approach in Hong Kong. A keen demand on SI therapy service was then emerged and related demand on training venues and professional training courses was thus increased. Thanks to the generous support of HK$ 2 million from Li Ka Shing Foundation, the Sensory Integration Training and Professional Development Centre was established and commenced service in November 2020. It is the first SI training centre integrated with both children and adults SI training venues and clinical teaching facilities in Hong Kong.
