Jockey Club A-Connect: Jockey Club Autism Support Network – School Support

In recent years, the number of students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) studying in ordinary primary and secondary schools has been increasing continuously. To provide a comprehensive support service to students and parents in need, The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust has pioneered a three-year programme specially for ASD - "JC A-Connect: Jockey Club Autism Support Network” since September 2015.

School Support service provides on-site group training for primary and secondary students with ASD, to improve the social communication, emotional regulation and learning strategies of ASD students to help with behavioral problems, enhance their overall learning ability and social skills. The programme is the first all-round support event especially for students with ASD, their families and schools.
