Rainbow Project

Established in 1999, the Rainbow Project aims to provide subsidized therapy treatments for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in low-income families.
 
Children with ASD are affected mainly in two areas; communication skills and social interaction skills. Besides having ASD, their ability to learn is also affected by conditions related to sensory issues.
 
Children with ASD benefit from occupational therapies (OT) and speech therapies (ST). Without access to OT/ST at an early stage children with ASD cannot attain the skills that they will need to lead a relatively independent life when they grow up. The programme will benefit 30 low-income families affected by ASD.
