About Edge Development Centre

'Practices that work'

Founded in 2018 and endorsed by HKGCSE, Edge Development Centre(Edge) is a social enterprise that aspires to be a service-providing think-tank comprising of front-line clinical professionals. It is an innovationfor innovations where front-line clinicians could rally around, proposingsystematic   solutions   to   social   problems   /   service   gaps.   We   empowerfront-line   clinicians   to   be   the   difference   they   want   to   see,   and   weencourage   bottom-up   evidence-based   practice   (EBP).   Through   multi-disciplinary collaboration and strong adhesion to the scientific methods,we   actualize   'Practices   that   work'   in   both   macro   (society-level)   andmicro (client-level) perspectives.

Edge   started   off   with   merely   two   founding   directors.   Front-line   professionals   with   diversespecialties, who share the vision with the Centre, gather to form an extensive network. It is now amulti-disciplinary workforce capable of actualizing innovations and delivering high quality clinicalservices. It is also one of the organizations that houses the largest number of serving EducationalPsychologists in Hong Kong.

In   2019,   Edge   was   awarded   the   EASE   (Education   and   SocialEntrepreneur) Fund,   by   The   Education   University   of   Hong   Kong   inearly 2019 for its very first innovative project.

In   2020,   in   collaboration   with   EdUHK,   Edge   was   also  funded   byAdvance Children Medical and Education Foundation to launch HongKong’s first territory-wide SEN after-school academic support project inprimary   schools   to   provide   homework   support   for   students   with   SENunder close supervision of Educational Psychologists. 

 

Our objectives

To be a powerhouse for theory-driven and innovative practices.

To bridge service gap in the society.

To promote evidence-based practice (EBP) in the society.

To make professional knowledge and support easily accessible to parents and teachers.

To empower systems (e.g. families, schools, centres, communities) through outreaching services.

 

Our approaches

01

Practices that work

 As an adopter of the scientist-practitioner model, we believe that we should practice science and use science in our practice. Every method we use are evidence-based, or theory-driven, on which we will seek to collect data in our practice to seek evidence. Every partners of ours is literate in the science behind the methods they use and welcome query and challenges from anyone. Don’t believe us. Challenge us. 

02

Decentralization and system-oriented

Typical training and rehabilitation services run in centre-settings. According to recent research, this is not as effective as running in home-setting or school-setting, where the service provider could also work on people (e.g. parents, teachers) and systems (e.g. parenting) that spend far more time with the child and affect the child the most. This is why, our name as a “centre” notwithstanding, we believe in having our partners going out to homes and schools to serve children.

03

Bottom-up innovation

All our professional partners are scientist-practitioners with a wide range of expertise and loads of creativity waiting to be realized in real-world service. With the centre’s support, we encourage ALL our professional partners to chip in and contribute new practicable and theory-driven idea so that the centre could put it in practice and research, and experienced staff could provide supervision meanwhile. We believe the centre should be a place where professionals practice what works and what they are good at.

04

Making consultation easy and professional knowledge widespread

Every step in a child’s development can be crucial. Parents and teachers should know how to provide right and make decisions wisely. When they have questions, they should be able to ask right away. When they want to know something, they should be able to know with ease and confidence. We help by making professional opinions easily accessible and professional knowledge widely spread in the society. We aspire to provide free preliminary consultation to make professional opinions available, free information for the public to refer to, and affordable learning opportunity for parents and teachers to equip themselves with professional knowledge.

05

Finding gaps and bridging gaps

Service now available in the society are heavily skewed towards certain kinds, serving certain types of special education needs (SEN) only, mainly because these services are well-established and resources are easy to come by. We do not settle for that. We find gaps and aim at bridging them. We look into what others do not do and develop new methods to serve people less served.
