Vocational assessment and training is one of the core responsibilities of occupational therapists (OTs). While such interventions can be provided in various settings according to the clienteles, those in educational institutes seem to receive insufficient attention. This article aims to reveal the undermined OTs’ roles in supporting vocational training students with dyslexia in Hong Kong. Roles of coordinator of special educational needs in a vocational training system are described and the added values of enabling OTs to take up the post are discussed. Solutions on enhancing OTs’ engagement in the related practices are suggested.

Key words: Occupational therapists, vocational training students, dyslexia, Hong Kong.
