"Blue" is a colour synonymous with "supporting autism" worldwide. Every year, autism organisations around the world celebrate the "World Autism Awareness Day" with unique fundraising and awareness-raising events.

APF would like to invite you to partner with us, to bring  autism awareness and acceptance to the fore in Hong Kong, on every 2 April and every day.

「藍色」在全球都是代表支持自閉症的顏色。在各地服務自閉症人士的機構每年都會以獨特的籌款及公眾教育活動,來響應和慶祝「世界關注自閉症日」。

APF誠意邀請你與我們攜手,於每年的4月2日及以至每一日,在香港宣揚關注自閉症和接納自閉症人士的訊息。

ABOUT US 關於我們 

WHAT IS AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER (ASD)? 

 

Autism, also known as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), is a severe disruption of the normal development process, with varying degrees of severity and levels of functioning. The cause remains unknown and ASD can be often diagnosed within the first few years of life. Although symptoms of autism vary from child to child, the core areas affected include:

  • Deficits in language and communication

  • Impairments in socialisation and social interaction

  • Undeveloped cognitive and adaptive functioning

  • Restricted repetitive and stereotyped patterns of behaviour and interests

According to the statistics of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States, the ASD prevalence is now 1 in 59 children. In Hong Kong, there were 6,800 children with sutiam studying in mainstream in 2015/2016 and it was estimated that the number would be more than 10,000 in the year of 2017/2018. Ever-increasing prevalence of ASD together with its impacts are something that we cannot afford to ignore.

甚麼是自閉症譜系障礙(ASD)?

 

自閉症也稱為自閉症譜系障礙(ASD),是一種廣泛、連續性的發展障礙和遲緩。至今還是成因未明及未有根治的方法。自閉症的徵狀一般在小孩出生後首數年出現,每個患者的情況不同,主要問題包括:

 

•  語言和溝通缺陷

•  社交能力及社會互動障礙

•  缺乏認知能力及適應能力

•  有限、重複及偏執性行為和興趣

 

自閉症會嚴重影響成長。根據美國疾病控制和預防中心的統計,目前在美國每59名兒童中,便有一名是自閉症患者。在香港,教育局在2015/2016年度發表的數字顯示有6,800名患有自閉症的學生在普通學校就讀,並估計此數字在2017/2018年度會升逾一萬人。自閉症的嚴重性和後果是我們不能承擔及忽視的
