Commissioned by the Hong Kong Physically Handicapped and Able-Bodied (PHAB) Association, a research team from APSS (including Prof. Eric CHUI, Dr Yammy CHAK, Dr Herrick WONG, and Dr Kong YAM) conducted an evaluation study on the service impact of the Hong Kong Jockey Club's "Project LEGEND". This initiative aimed to support the personal and career development of young individuals with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and/or Specific Learning Disabilities (SpLD).
A press conference was held on 26 August 2023 at PolyU to disseminate the findings from the evaluation study. The study results showed that Project LEGEND was well-received by various stakeholders. Both the quantitative and qualitative findings clearly suggested that the Project had significant and constructive impacts on young people with ADHD and/or SpLD. Almost all of the participants in the programme reported experiencing positive changes at both the individual and interpersonal levels. The knowledge and skills gained from the programme will better prepare them for the future, both in the workplace and in real-life settings.
