About the Conference

The Hong Kong ASD Conference 2016: Supporting Learning and Development (2016香港自閉症研討會:支援學習與發展)  is the first annual signature event organized by JC A-Connect: Jockey Club Autism Support Network, which aims at enhancing support for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), their schools and families. Experts, professionals, educators, caregivers and other interested individuals meet to share their work and insights on effective support for children and adolescents with ASD.

Themed “Supporting Learning and Development”, the Conference will focus on the support rendered to students in mainstream primary and secondary schools as well as their families. It is expected to attract participants who will:

  • learn from leading experts about best educational practices that meet international standards;
  • learn about latest trends and developments in services for children and adolescents with ASD as well as their families in Hong Kong and nearby regions; and
  • have opportunities to share and discuss with other stakeholders about research findings, good practices, and services through presentations.
