受助的快樂

幫人當然開心。尤其我做這種助人行業,每曰用自己的專業知識和經驗去幫有需要的人,見到當事人輕鬆了自然快慰。若不是箇中充滿喜樂,我又怎會從事這種工作廿年有餘呢?事實上,我心樂此不疲。

回想起來,自八九年在聾啞學校當教師至今,我的工作一直圍繞住為有特殊需要的學生,開拓個人可持續發展的空間。九七年開始則重於智力非凡的學生,幫助他們處理傳統社會對他們的謎思、過高的期望和偏狹的關顧,協助他們、家人和學校擴展配合個別發展的生態,以互助互信爲基礎,爲生命創造可持續發展的教育文化和心理空間。

we are a family

坦白說,日常除了個別輔導及評估等工作外,每分秒都沒停過爲個別學生動腦筋,弄清楚下一步還有什麼趕緊要辦,並嘗試把目前種種心理、環境、家庭、教學、行政安排或人際溝通等,多方面的障礙一一拆解,不至《前路不通》,務求孩子在追尋理想的漫長路上,重點出擊,或可走得更遠,更接近志向。

慣了這種個別化的跟進工作,幫了案主把握機遇達到更佳效果很開心,不過,久而久之習以爲常。無再在意什麼意助人之樂。

直至今天,自己遇上一些難題,卻幸得朋友及時相助,她不僅運用專業知識幫我,更難得是她在關鍵時刻打個電話給我,或瞭解情況,或告之什麼時候該做什麼。

原來得到別人及時援手的感覺這麼好。天下有情,暖在心間。多感謝這位有心人。

Expand His Experiential Knowledge – by KL

  1. 鵝認為: “這位四歲IQ達145的女孩Anala Beevers坦言自己很聰明,比父母更加聰明,又熱心糾正父母的語法,是意味着父母未能滿足到她對知識的渴求,因為父母不能像她擅長記憶或者標準語法。父母要注意,在她記着一些知識的同時,還要引導她思考更多,例如:那些知識給自己有甚麼感受、對人有什麼關係、如何應用在生活上、現在與過住學的有甚麼不同……父母應該要擴闊她,以免她被自己的強項記憶力,局限在「純粹記著」。”新聞原文: http://hk.news.yahoo.com/黑人四歲女iq145-躋全美最聰明人榜-222133865.html

I fully agree with the above. I remember Ryan was interested in MTR last year. Within a few days, he could dictate all 84 MTR stations. However, we don’t want him to just “memorize” the MTR stations. We encouraged him to explore and broaden his knowledge. Every weekend, we promised to bring him to one MTR station and looked around the surrounding area of the station. We would like him to extend his understanding from MTR station to the transportation network and city layout. After each journey, he would describe the station, stick some photos and collect the station information pamphlet in his journal. This is not just a good learning experience, but also an excellent parent child activity to us!

In addition, we gave Ryan the freedom to choose the route from station to station. He was so excited about it. Sometimes he showed us the short cut; sometimes he liked the long way. He was our tour guide and we could rely on him to bring us to the destination. I am proud of him! That’s how we put knowledge into practice!

A Story at Train Station – by KL

A Story at Train Station

picture 1

Last week, we brought Ryan to Guangzhou to visit relatives and take the train ride. When we went back to Hong Kong, our train was delayed. We needed to wait for an additional 2 hours. I was thinking how we could kill time. Luckily, there was an English speaking girl sitting in front of us at the waiting area. She saw Ryan and said Hello to him. Ryan heard the fluent English and felt so excited. He immediately said Hello to her and started the conversation.

Ryan: I am Ryan, nice to meet you. What is your name?

Nina: I am Nina.

Then Ryan told her about his little sister and buddies (soft toys).

Ryan: You guess what my sister’s name is. It starts with letter J (J-Jolie)….. I have 3豹豹 (soft toys), they are my friends. I have two big ears and when I go out; if they cry at home I can hear. So I will ask 姊姊 to take care of them. (Imagining). Their names start with letters P, M, and C. (P-豹豹, M-mini豹豹, C-Corn). [Gifted children live in their imagining world]

Ryan felt so excited and he continued to talk for 2 hours “non-stop”. [Mom worries about ADHD] It was 9:30pm at night and our train finally arrived. Ryan normally sleeps before 9:30pm at home. He was so sleepy. At the train station, his “new friend” Nina needed to go to another train car, we couldn’t sit together. Ryan was so disappointed. Then, Nina told Ryan, “You don’t sleep, we will see each other in Hunghom”. [Oh no, gifted children really keep the promise] Ryan tried his best to stay awake in the train for the whole 2-hour journey. [Mom admires the determination of Ryan] When we took off from train at Hunghom station, Ryan was so nervous. He was afraid he couldn’t see Nina again. Luckily, Nina kept her promise and said bye to him at the station. After that, Ryan told mom he likes Nina so much and he slept in the next second. I am proud of him to be assertive in front of a stranger and be persistence in keeping his promise.

亞斯伯格幸福攻略:家有「蛋人」格外留神

20130823-104633.jpg

無反應 但上心
有反應 但離題
你恨也好愛也好
他依然固我不理

物理學理論有所謂『平衡時空』,誰想到與阿斯伯格伴侶同行一生,卻需要將這物理理論在婚姻生活中應用。一旦在你家裏不知不覺中大量繁殖起來,你更不得不重整一套「自求多福」的攻略。不過,筆者堅信萬物有個終極原理:愛有明天。

來!重新摸索吧。我們要無限擴展好奇心啊!
