Programme Objectives

In view of the increasing number of students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in Hong Kong’s mainstream primary and secondary schools, The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust initiated the “JC A-Connect: Jockey Club Autism Support Network” (JC A-Connect) in 2015. The first of its kind in the city, JC A-Connect provides holistic support for children with ASD attending mainstream schools, and their parents. The programme offers school-based support for such students and schools; provides support to parents and families through 18 centres throughout the city, as well as organising public education programmes with the aim to raising public awareness and understanding about ASD.

JC A-Connect involves cross-sectoral collaboration to help enhance support for children with ASD at home, school and community through an innovative service model. The progamme also aims to strengthen the expertise development of teachers and service providers for the sustainable development of ASD support services in Hong Kong.
