Evita believes that “if children can’t learn the way we teach, we should teach the way they learn”.

Evita completed a degree in Psychology and then went on to take a postgraduate degree in Special Education. She has over ten years’ experience in working with toddlers, children, and adolescents with additional needs in both mainstream and special needs settings. She has also trained both teachers and practice teachers as well as conducting parent-child interaction intervention programmes in the Education University of Hong Kong.

Evita believes “if children can’t learn the way we teach, we should teach the way they learn”. She values the CDC’s multi-disciplinary approach to support individual needs. For her role as a Curriculum Development Manager, Evita aims to work with her colleagues to maximise children’s developmental potential. She also has a strong belief in not just supporting the children themselves, but also their families.
