Topics and Rundown:

Time Topic & Abstract
9:00am – 10:05am How to Teach Non-verbal Children with ASD to Speak – Part 1 (English)
Mr. Toby Mountjoy
Autism Partnership Director


Autism spectrum disorder primarily affects the development of children’s social and communication skills. Therefore, increasing the ability of children to communicate is an indispensable part of training. Establishing good spontaneous communication skills will not only greatly reduce the child’s behavioral problems, but also help them integrate into the social life and enable them to understand the various situations of daily life by using communication to improve their quality of life.

Mr. Mountjoy will introduce different types of language expressions through lectures and videos. He will also teach how to improve the motivation of children to increase their effectiveness of learning and communication with others.
10:05am – 10:20am Break
10:20am – 11:30am How to Teach Non-verbal Children with ASD to Speak – Part 2 (English)
Mr. Toby Mountjoy
Autism Partnership Director
11:30am – 12:30pm Lunch break
12:30pm – 2:00pm Critical School Readiness Skills for Young Children with ASD (Mandarin)
Ms. Catherine Tam
Behavioral Consultant


Parents of children with ASD are eager to send their children to school just like other typically developing children, while many schools also welcome children with ASD to learn in their schools. However, parents and teachers are often not well informed whether the learning environment provided by the schools are conducive to the long-term development of the children. If children lack of relevant learning ability and send them to school hastily, it will not only hinder their progress, but also delay the “golden age” of treatment.

In the presentation, Ms. Tam will discuss the conditions and skills that children with ASD need before entering school, and also provide guidelines of criteria to objectively assess rather a child is ready for school or not. Topics will also include methods in training children step by step from “one-on-one” training to “smaller group teaching” and lastly to “bigger group learning”.
2:00pm – 2:15pm Break
2:15pm – 3:45pm Using ABA to Solve Behavior Problems in Primary /Secondary School (English)
Ms. Kathleen Man
AP School Principal


Aoi Pui School (APS) is the only school in Hong Kong with tailored education system and teaching method designed specifically for the needs of moderate to high functioning children with ASD. Between 2013 and 2017, up to 50% of the graduated students were successfully connected to mainstream schools.

The Principal of APS, Ms. Man, will compare the traditional teaching method adopted by general schools with the teaching method by APS. She will further demonstrate how ABA is applied at APS to reduce students’ challenging behaviors, and how the teachers utilize systems to maintain behaviors. Lastly, she will discuss how to review and adjust students’ individual needs under the group teaching format.
