Nevertheless, owing to the absence of general understanding and acceptance of their unique mode of communication, they are confronted with great challenges of standing on their own feet. To deepen the public understanding of autistic youths and equip the latter with job skills, the ‘Pre-job Training for Autistic Youths’ projecthas been held by Heep Hong Society in partnership with MSIG Insurance (Hong Kong) Limited since 2008 to provide the youths with training and internship opportunities. Workplace Stories of Autistic Youths is a collection of workplace stories shared by the participants to deepen public understating of their characteristics, strengths and needs.
