CTL Teaching Enhancement Seminar Series #2
Topic: “Dos and Don’ts with SEN types of ASD & ADHD & PD”
Hong Kong is a pluralistic society. People with disabilities, of different ages, different colors and different cultures can live and learn together, built on our mutual respect, acceptance and tolerance. According to the United Nations’s “The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities”, disability is an evolving concept and the social participation of the disables is often affected by public attitudes and environmental barriers.
Therefore, the concept of “disability” can evolve together with our ever-changing social environment and our mindset. .
This workshop aims to help transform The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong into a model of promoting “inclusiveness of disabilities”in the higher education sector in Hong Kong. We, the HSUHKers, could demonstrate how to eliminate barriers through attitudes and implement education equality by “The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities”.
