"We Hold Your Hands"
~ A Journey to Help Children with Autism in China in 2014 ~
by Claire Hu
Last semester, I received the Julie Davis Butler Award at San Domenico High School. The award was to be used toward social services. In the summer, I used the award to organize activities aimed at promoting autism awareness in Hangzhou, China. My project consisted of two parts: first, I gained knowledge of the first-hand experience with autism at Peking University 6th Hospital Rehabilitation and Training Center for Autistic Children (BRAC). Second, I organized fun activities for autistic children at Hangzhou Healthy Primary School (HHPS).
