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 autism studying in mainstream in 2015/2016 and it was estimated that the number would be about 10,300 in the year of 2017/2018. Ever-increasing prevalence of ASD together with its impacts are something that we cannot afford to ignore.
