星兒家庭早療計劃 Early Intervention for Autistics
計劃理念 Project Objective
When a child is first diagnosed with autism, the parents need ample help and guidance to avoid delay in treatment within the 0-6 year old window of rehabilitation. At present, public medical and social service support for autistics still require a long waiting period after initial diagnosis. LoveXpress, partnering with different professional, education and social institutions, has developed a holistic one-year program, “Early Intervention for Autistic Families”, to help low-income families during this period. The program, which includes professional therapies, emotion counselling, parents’ training, social networking and home visits helps parents accept and positively face the realities of autism, and methodically helps them plan the growth and development of their children within the golden treatment period of 0-6 years of age.
By supporting autistic children and their parents, the ability of the entire family to face challenges can be strengthened and the children can receive more appropriate care.
Grasp the golden age of 0 to 6 years of early childhood and provide appropriate support and referral services for families in need.
Give parents effective guidance and counselling strategies for parents to master their children’s growth needs and effectively plan appropriate counselling directions.
Emphasis is placed on alleviating the emotions and pressures that parents derive from nurturing children with autism spectrum disorders, and promoting communication and internal support systems among family members.
Establish a mutual support network between parents to enhance parents’ ability to face difficulties and establish a self-help system.
