    Hi
    Depending on how severe your child's Autism is. I used to work at a school called ' Jockey Club Sarah Roe School' http://clc.esf.edu.hk/GroupHomepage.asp?GroupId=17
    This is on Kowloon side. It's a school for children with severe and profound learning difficulties. They also do integration to main stream schools.
    I am not sure of any schools on HK Island. You should contact Bradbury school which is also ESF or contract ESF (English Schools Foundation) directly to learn more. Maybe your child could be in a main stream school with support from the Support staff from the Special Educational Needs department within the school.
    I think that the Matlida hospital at the Peak will also have more information. http://www.cdchk.org/
    Hope this is of some help.
    Good luck

    Yes, I would recommend them too. They use the ABA method, very useful with autistic children in helping them to 'normalise'. My sister used to work for them in Spore and she has seen kids improve tremendously with ABA. But have to mention that with ABA, lots of therapy is needed and costs can add up.

    The Harbour School has a sister school for autism called the Children's Institute. http://www.theharbourschool.edu.hk/index.htm
    The Harbour School is mainstream but the Children's Institute works is right next to them and some of the children spend time in the mainstream section as well.

    I can recommend the occupational therapists at Rehabilitation Consultants at 852-2850-6276. Also, my daughter has PDD and sensory integration dysfunction and we found Dr. Caleb Knight to be very helpful. He's at the Child and Family Centre
    15F The Strand
    49 Bonham Strand East
    Sheung Wan,
    Hong Kong
    Phone: 852 2543 0993
    E-Mail: [email protected]

    He works with children from high-functioning to severe and is familiar with programs in town.

    For gluten free foods, your best bet will be Three Sixty in the landmark building and Oliver's in the Prince's Building, both in Central.

    Good luck. This is is not a great town for kids with special needs, but resources are there.
