Some training sessions were conducted in local primary schools to prepare children for the new environments and classroom routines.

Introduction
Children face a multitude of challenges when they enter primary school. Those with special educational needs (SEN) encounter more difficulties in adaptation. Thanks to the sponsor of The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant, Heep Hong Society organises the “Primary One Adaptation Programme” for children with SEN who are studying at mainstream Primary One. They can participate in the group training at one of the eight Early Childhood and Education Centres of the Society to strengthen their social skills and adjust their living habits. 

Beneficiaries
Children with special needs, including autism spectrum disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and developmental delay, who are studying at mainstream Primary One. 

Service scope
Primary one adaptation class: Over eight sessions, children in groups of six participate in activities which help them adapt to their school life and social life at a mainstream primary school. 

Service centres
Cheung Ching Centre, Jessie and Thomas Tam Centre, Jockey Club Centre, Kwok Yip Lin Houn Centre, Leung King Centre, Pak Tin Centre, Shun Lee Centre, Fu Cheong Centre
