Sharing from Mrs. Li : Learning at Pathways is Important to My Daughter
Mrs. Li, mother of Chloe, looked back to the day she stepped out of the Pamela Youde Child Assessment Centre, holding in her hand the assessment report indicating that her daughter showed early signs of dyslexia, along with ADHD and impulsive personality. Mrs. Li was extremely worried; Chloe was just a kindergarten student, how would her learning path be?
In order to know more about dyslexia, Mrs. Li attended a parent seminar organized by Pathways. After listening to the speaker, she realized that early intervention will make training more effective. Hence she enrolled Chloe into Pathways’ intervention programme. Chloe is now a Primary 4 student, and she has been taking lessons at Pathways for nearly five years, from the Early Literacy Support Programme when she was in K3, to the After School Support Programme in Chinese, English and Mathematics.
As Chloe has a short memory span, it is easy for her to forget what she learns from school. Teachers at Pathways, on the other hand, make use of multi-sensory and interactive games to teach, making learning more interesting for Chloe, and her performance gradually improves.
“I enjoy learning at Pathways as the teaching style is different from that in school. Not only is it more interesting, it also makes it easier for me to understand and remember the key content, helping me to improve my academic results,” Chloe said.
In fact, even other parents noticed the change in Chloe’s learning behavior. Mrs. Li is very thankful for the long-term support and guidance from the teachers at Pathways; in particular when teachers take time after class dismissal to explain to her the progress of her child, and the areas that need more attention. This makes Chloe understand that family and teachers are always here to support her.
“Learning at Pathways is very important to Chloe. When I schedule extra-curricular activities for her, lessons at Pathways are always the top priority. Even though we have to travel from Hong Kong Island to Mongkok for class, we still think that it is well worth the effort,” Mrs. Li concluded.
