To assist families with financial limitations to receive needed treatment as early as possible, short-term medical assessment or occupational therapy will be offered.
Families who would like to apply for the services must meet the following 3 conditions:
1. With children under age 18 who are developmentally delayed in learning, behaviour, emotion, speech and language or social skills;
2. The developmentally delayed children are not currently receiving any related services from any public sector organisations;
3. Families receiving various subsidies, such as Comprehensive Social Security Assistance, Disability Allowance, Student Travel Subsidy, Student Free Meal Program (學童免費午餐), Fee Remission and Government Grant.
How to apply
To simplify application procedures, parents are requested to first obtain referral through governmental or non-governmental organizations, kindergarten, nursery centre or school social workers and teacher and contact us direct for application.
Due to limited resources and to ensure that those in needs get the assistance, applicants may be required to provide relevant documentary proof, such as income proof, bank statement and proof of all subsidies currently received. All the information provided will be kept strictly confidential and will be used for application purpose only.
Upon receipt of an application, we will review all the materials to determine eligibility for assistance based on the requirements listed above. Families qualifying for services will be invited to our centre; and upon needed, a short-term paediatric diagnosis and assessment or occupational therapy services (limited to 4 sessions) will be offered at half price.
Service available from Monday to Thursday only. (Regarding services offered, sessions and duration, Links Child Development Centre's decision is final.)
