“Hello! I am Bling Bling – child with ASD. I want to make new friends.

To make new friends with me in this summer through JC A-Connect activities, are you ready?”

We have been wearing masks for more than two years, in addition to the suspension of classes and the arrangement of online classes, students were unable to meet and communicate with their friends. Apart from affecting their communication skills and social living, they have difficulty on making new friends. While parents need to take care of their children at home for a long time making both parties under a lot of pressure. 

To increase public awareness and acceptance of students with ASD, JC A-Connect created a character ambassador “Bling Bling” together with the well-known children’s book series Mr. Men Little Miss since 2021. 

“Hello! New Friends” storybook

In 2022, JC A-Connect launched a new “Hello! New Friends” storybook to continue to advocate message on social inclusion. “Hello! New Friends” is a story of Bling Bling who is having fun with friends in summer holiday. At the beginning of the story, Bling Bling is excited to introduce his new toy car to new friends everywhere.  Bling Bling interrupted the conversation between friends, making new friend leaving the group suddenly and he dose not know why until one day…

“Hello! New Friends” storybook will debut at the 32nd Hong Kong Book Fair in 2022 and will be distributed to the public free of charge, and will also be distributed to kindergartens, primary schools and Parent Resource Centres to encourage care for people with ASD and respect for one another in order to build an inclusive society together.

Apart from “Hello! New Friends” storybook, Bling Bling will lead a series of activities incorporating elements of inclusive education, aiming to raise public awareness of ASD, and promote social inclusion, to encourage the public to recognize and accept people with different personalities. 

Let’s have a summer vacation with Bling Bling!
