How Hong Kong's special-needs students overcome adversity to pursue their dreams

By ITS Education Asia

Here as an uplifting article from the SCMP about how Mary Lam and other special educational needs students in Hong Kong have succeeded at the DSE. 

Mary Lam Ka-yan recalls the pressure she felt as she struggled to squeeze out paint for her visual arts assessment when she took the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (DSE) exam in April this year. The 21-year-old, who is pursuing her dream of becoming a graphic designer, has cerebral palsy, a disorder which impairs her visual perception and the movement of her hands and legs.

“I was granted extra time to finish the exams as this disorder has affected my writing speed and ability to paint. At times I would need help from assistants at the exam venue as I have difficulty squeezing the paints and performing precise movements with my hands,” she said.

Here at ITS we are very aware of students with special education needs and are happy to talk to parents and students about how we can help you achieve your academic goals. SEN students often benefit from our highly personalized, flexible, approach to learning. Contact us for a free consultation.
