This service project was initiated to support children diagnosed as "Attention Deficit and/ Hyperactivity Disorder" (AD/HD). Volunteers engaged the children in the three workshops by playing coordination games and checkpoint games, as well as making handicraft. During the service, the children were happy to play with the "big brothers" and "big sisters" and enjoyed the joyful afternoons together.

所謂「叻」的小朋友通常是指成熟和聽話的小朋友,而患有ADHD的小朋友正正相反,常常是一些大人的「眼中釘」。其實會否是我們對「叻」的定義有問題?患有ADHD的小朋友都可以多才多藝,才華洋溢。相對聽話早熟的小朋友,我更能感受這些小朋友的真誠。

在這個服務裡,我學到如何尋找共同話題來打開話匣子。就算是一些天馬行空的幻想,患有ADHD的小朋友亦會願意走出第一步,和我們聊天和交流。雖然有時候他們的行為和言語不經意地傷害了身邊的人,但只要我們付出多點耐性和同理心,用有趣的形式去教導他們對與錯,他們也會慢慢理解,我們亦能見到他們顯著改善和進步。
