Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), is a group of neuron-developmental impairments. People suffer from ASD usually shows different degrees of deficit in social interaction and verbal and non-verbal communication, repetitive and stereotyped behaviour, such as rocking back-and-forth, repeating others’ speech or with obsessive interest.

Research indicates that the signs of Autism can emerge at the age of 18 months to the age of three, and, these symptoms, whether mild or severe, are incurable and could affect people for the rest of their lives.

Founded in 1999 by a group of concerned parents, educators, and professionals, Rainbow Project is a local charitable organisation set up in Hong Kong. They provide English medium special education service, bilingual (English or Cantonese) occupation therapy and speech therapy to children (age 3 to 11) who are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other special education needs. Aside from that, the Rainbow Project also conducts workshops and training at their learning centre and gives talks on Autism at mainstream schools to raise the awareness of Autism.
