The new centre is designed under the theme ‘STAR’, which carries two meanings. Autistic children are often called the ‘children of the stars’ - the stars which sparkle alone at the edge of the sky in darkness. ‘STAR’ also represents the core values of the Society’s services for autistic individuals: Support, Training, Acceptance, Respect. It is the Society’s vision to help them shine like the stars and live a colourful life.
