Autism Grace Adventure

Social Inclusion

The venture provides more support options for caregivers of children with special educational needs (SEN) who are on the waiting list for support, as well as for educators and social workers.

The venture provides teaching materials which caregivers can use to conduct home training for SEN children, preventing the children from missing the golden period for intervention due to long waiting times. The venture also targets grassroots families who cannot afford high training costs, as well as educators and social workers who cannot spare the time to attend training. Through viewing online videos provided by the venture, they will learn how to support children with SEN in daily life and get a glimpse of the new “Applied Behaviour Analysis” therapy (ABA therapy).

In addition to online training, the venture organises workshops to help participants apply “ABA Therapy” more effectively to enhance parent-child relationships. Through connecting the caregivers, the venture believes that they can overcome the challenges by working together.
