Services for ASD

Our Belief

Persons challenged by Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) often face tremendous difficulty in open employment because of their deficits in communication skills and flexibility, as well as the social misconceptions about them. However, we strongly believe that everyone possesses unique talents and strengths. Given the right opportunity and support, persons challenged by ASD can realize their full potentials at work and be a useful member of the work force.

 

Our Vision

The project aims to provide one-stop and diversified supported employment service to persons challenged by ASD for supporting their long-term career developments and their social integration.

With the strengths-based approach, a series of intensive and tailor-made pre-vocational training, job matching, placement and on-the-job support will be initiated to realize their potentials and to enhance their employability, reward at work, sense of satisfaction, self-esteem and life hopes. On the other hand, education programs will be provided to employers and frontline personnel for their better understanding and acceptance towards individuals challenged by ASD and hence facilitate a better integration of the latter into the workplace and community.
