Autism Partnership Mission & Goals:
This year, to raise awareness of ASD and to support the Autism Awareness Day (April 2), a series of online talks will be organized with ASD and ABA topics to educate the public, parents and educators about ASD and address the importance of early intervention and the effectiveness of APM*.
*Autism Partnership Method (APM) is a progressive model of ABA that is highly individualized, child friendly, holistic and focused on “in-the-moment analysis” and “clinical judgement”.
1-hour night talks from February – March
In the month of February and March, AP Accelerate Program Consultants will be conducting 2 online talks on specific ABA topics to empower the public with useful ASD knowledge and ABA practical skills. With over 10 years of experience in planning and implementing ABA intensive Behavioral Treatment, each consultant will provide valuable insights and inspiration on how to tackle with different problems of children with ASD.
On Feb. 20, 2021, AP Behavioral Consultant, Justin Cho, will be the moderator of the first talk. Worked as a Class Lead Teacher in Aoi Pui School, a primary Autism School in Hong Kong, he will invite teachers from APS to share their insights and strategies to help children with ASD to have effective online learning.
What’s sharing in this featured interview?
It has been a difficult year for children during this pandemic, especially for children with ASD. For children with ASD, early and consistent intervention is very important, but circumstances may have forced a lot of children with special needs that are not quite ready to try to learn through an online medium.
Justin will invite teachers from Aoi Pui School, to share their experiences with regards to:
- How the pandemic has impacted their regular teaching and routines
- The importance of building a strong foundation of Learning How to Learn skills to help the child engage and learn online
- How they have helped children requiring different levels of assistance to transition to online learning
- Different strategies used to help children engage and learn meaningfully using online learning

Autism Partnership Foundation (APF), a registered charity body (qualified for the exemption from tax section 88 of the Inland Revenue) in Hong Kong, is committed to making a difference in the life of individuals with autism. Through various fundraising initiatives, APF aims to raise funds to generate public awareness and knowledge about autism. We will also advocate ABA treatment and intervention through community programs of education and research and provide support and help for children with ASD and their families in Asia.
Aoi Pui School (APS), formerly Autism Partnership School, is a private primary school and is registered under the Education Department. It was founded by Autism Partnership Foundation in 2007 and was the first school designed specifically for the needs of moderate to high functioning children with autism in Hong Kong.
The school benefits students who may not be quite ready for a full mainstream placement by providing more individual planning to meet their education, emotional and communication needs.
