Raising Hands

Mr & Mrs B  reached out  with concerns about one of their three children in a top school in HK.

 

Their son was receiving Occupational Therapy at extra cost, based on a PscyhEd report done 2.5 years ago. Yet he did not have an Individualised Education Plan, the parents had never met or talked to the SEN Co-Ordinator . His teachers were in no way accommodating his learning needs and the whole family were very stressed and unhappy ... to the point that they were considering other schools.

 

Our Senior Consultant spent 1.5 hours with Mr & Mrs B to understand the situation fully. With the parents' permission, she contacted the exact person responsible in their child's school to explain the situation in writing and meanwhile facilitated visits to other schools to allow the family to have a frame of reference and understand their options.

 

We outlined the timeline of events from parents perspective and then their concerns and expectations going forward.

 

School called parents on the same day and scheduled meeting for that afternoon.

 

Parents had a face to face meeting with the school who committed to have an IEP in place immediately after CNY and a further meeting to go over it.

 

Thank you so much for all of your support here. 

This is such a weight off my shoulders.

 

I went in and had a meeting with the Head of Additional Support and the Head of Lower School today.  They are setting up a meeting after CNY to get an IEP in place and a whole team to tackle this.  Great steps in the right direction!
