The development of postgraduate training programmes in disability studies has not been limited to specific academic fields. Internationally, programmes exist in the fields of education, counselling psychology, social work as well as nursing and dental training. The programmes seem to have become more generic in nature over the years. Sweeney and Dalton (2007) identified similarities in contemporary international perspectives that indicate a clear shift of focus from a medical-based approach to a more holistic multi-disciplinary approach in disability studies. They recommend that compartmentalization in terms of disciplines, ideas and practice should be challenged and changed if disability studies is to go forward and offer an alternative, effective perspective. In view of the above arguments it seems imperative that postgraduate training in working with people with disabilities moves towards inter-professional training since it provides the students with opportunities to learn some specific information about interacting with the other professions and gain knowledge about the roles, knowledge and contributions that can be made by professions other than their own.

Hi, I am afraid I disagree with a previous post that “the pandemic will worsen hidden youth’s situation.” You see, now everyone is asked to stay at home, and hidden youth no longer face pressure from their parents or society to go out, which might reduce their stress level.

Following the previous post, we have used the snowball sampling method and asked the interviewees to introduce their “hidden” peers who would like to accept the interview. But will it have an issue of generalizability?

The outbreak of coronavirus pandemic and social distancing measures might make “hidden youth” even more isolated from society. Our center’s cyber outreaching team is considering online engaging those youth and look for participants who would like to accept interviews. May I ask which sampling method is the most appropriate?

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
