Chinese Children with ASD in Hong Kong (SAR): Development of Inclusive Practice
Peters, Brenda; Forlin, Chris
Journal of Research in Special Educational Needs, v11 n2 p87-98 Jun 2011
The advancement of inclusive educational provision in the Asia-Pacific region has been guided by international research. As one example, Hong Kong has developed a unique and cultural response to inclusive practice within the region. This paper reviews Hong Kong's development of inclusive education practice for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). It provides an account of how services in education have developed for Chinese children with ASD, from diagnosis to school placement, and how the students are supported. A number of challenges for the region are discussed including those related to pedagogy, mentoring, placement, support and the need for culturally appropriate professional learning.
