A Small but Sure Step: Hong Kong's First Parents Resource Centre.
Ho, Sandra
This report describes Hong Kong's first parent resource center for parents of children with handicaps, which opened in August 1990. The need by parents for emotional, educational, material, and other support and services is documented. Parents of special children are seen as a resource for each other and as advocates for their children. The report describes establishment of the resource center and its services, which include a hotline, a resource library, a toy library, professional consultation, educational talks and skill training sessions, social and recreational functions, and peer counseling by parents. Future directions include outreach programs and development of a second center. Statistics on membership, service utilization, and programming are attached. (12 references) (DB)
