2 What is Autism? Description Autism is a deveopmenta disabiity that impairs sensory input causing probems in socia behavior, communication and earning. It hinders estabishment of persona reationships, and interaction in community ife. Most, but not a, individuas with autism have some degree of menta retardation. Causes No singe bioogica cause has been found but a significant number of medica disorders occur in conjunction with autism. Current research supports the fact that autism is a disorder of eary brain deveopment, probaby before 30 weeks gestationa age. Symptoms Autism greaty affects the way an individua reates to others and to the word. Its symptoms can be cassified in the foowing genera areas: Quaitative impairment in socia interaction skis; Quaitative impairment in using communication toos (eye contact, body anguage, verba anguage ); Limited, repetitive and stereotyped pattern of behavior, interests and activities Deayed or abnorma functioning occurring before the age of three. Statistics Autism has been found throughout the word in famiies of a racia and socia backgrounds. It occurs in approximatey 5-15 out of every 10,000 births, and is four times more common in boys than girs. It is estimated that there are at east 600,000 individuas with autism in China. Diagnoses Because the causes of autism are currenty sti unknown, there are no medica tests that can definitivey confirm or rue out a diagnosis. It is diagnosed by comparing the individua's behavior to the diagnosis criteria and determining whether or not the individua meets those criteria (DSM and ICD). Treatment To date, there is no effective cure. Eary diagnosis and intervention are vita to the future deveopment of the chid. Speciaized services designed in an IEP (Individua Educationa Program) incuding educationa, residentia, and empoyment services are needed. INSIDE THE WORLD OF AUTISM More than one miion Americans may have it, and the number of new cases is expoding. (TIME Magazine, May 6, 2002) 2

3 Parent training--our unique service mode has been: & & Organized as a 11-week course. There are 4 courses hed each year. Each course now enros about 60 famiies who come from a parts of China. The whoe training program contains: 2 weeks for observation and assessment of students with autism. An IEP (Individua Educationa Program) is deveoped for each student as an outcome of this process. 7 weeks for teaching ABA Techniques (parents practice ABA skis each day with sessions for guidance and feedback from teachers in sma groups). The skis are separated into 10 units, which are ectured on each Friday. Parents are tested at the end of each week, and they practice these skis in different sessions, such as anguage/cognitive session, fine motor, sports etc. 2 weeks for evauation of the students and deveoping an IFP (Individua Famiy program). Foow-up training exists for parents who woud ike to further the training skis aready acquired.

Lack of ega guarantee for: Socia services. Famiies have to sef-pay for their chidren s education, incuding remedia services. Limited abiity to pay means that can not charge high tuition fees, which are our main source of revenue. Universa compusory education for peope with disabiities. This means that parent view as their chidren s ony chance for improvement and perhaps even cure ( which it is not). Limited Awareness about: Autism diagnosis and the need for educationa treatment. Respect of the right of a chidren to education (schoo enroment rejection) Chaenges is facing--1. Long waiting ist. Critica need for expansion of services. 2.
