Currently, there is no medical treatment for DCD. Specific management of DCD involves training in two aspects. The first aspect focuses on remediating the children’s underlying deficits (such as a sense of balance) with the expectation of subsequent improvement in motor performance. The second aspect is to train task-specific skills through breaking down of activities (such as dressing and skipping) into small steps to be practiced separately before the complete task is performed.

Thanks to the MEL courses and everyone’s sharing, I’ve learned so much about program evaluation!

Hence, may I ask what factors should be taken into consideration when I plan a program evaluation?

Hello. Some of my colleagues suggest that we could use the theory-based model in our program evaluation. But I don’t know this model very much. Could anyone kindly give me a clue about the strengths and weaknesses of this model?

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?
