Train-the-trainer Workshop: The Poly Kids programme for parents with preschool aged children with developmental delay
15 August 2017 - 17 August 2017
The Food and Health Bureau of HKSARG has granted a sponsorship in 2014 for a 39-month pilot project named “Poly Kids” undertaken by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University to develop and provide a training programme for parents with preschool aged children with developmental delay, as well as evaluate the efficacy of the programme. The Poly Kids is an evidence-based parent training programme which aims at improving parents’ knowledge and skills in parent-child communication, positive parenting, as well as facilitation in children’s language, gross and fine motor development, and preschool concepts.
The train-the-trainer workshop will enable professionals to implement Poly Kids programme in their educational or clinical settings. Participants must attend the full workshop to become qualified trainers. Upon full completion of the training, eligible participants will receive the complete program manual to further deliver the programme. You and your representatives are cordially invited to attend the train-the-trainer workshop with details as follows:-
Target Audience: Educational psychologists, clinical psychologists, speech therapists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, doctors, nurses, social workers, qualified special childcare workers, preschool teachers with training in special education, who may potentially deliver the programme in the future.
