The Allied Professional (AP) Department at APSN Chaoyang School is made up of Occupational Therapists, Psychologists, Social Workers and Speech and Language Therapists. Besides providing individual intervention to identified pupils and families, the AP team collaborates closely with teachers to implement multi-disciplinary programmes that are infused into the school curriculum to facilitate holistic development of pupils. The AP Department also conducts parent workshops to educate parents and equip them with skills to help their children cope with changing emotional and behavioural needs, social communication patterns and motor development.
APSN Chaoyang School’s partnership framework encompasses meaningful collaborations between school and community partners to support and enhance pupils’ holistic education and development. Throughout the year, activities such as Educational Excursions, Learning Journeys to places of interest, Buddy Reading Programmes, Visual Art or ICT lessons, Camps and Festival Celebrations are conducted with the support of our partners, in alignment with school strategic goals to meet the social, intellectual, and emotional needs of the pupils.
Parents are important partners for the education of students with ASD in APSN Chaoyang School. The Parent Support Group (PSG) was set up for better collaboration between school and parents. The PSG works closely with the school to provide authentic learning opportunities for all students. Parents meet up regularly for outings, workshops and gatherings.
