Activists lay down law on autism


Autistic people face disadvantages in the local judicial system, with judges and prosecutors having little knowledge about them, an advocacy group said.


To mark World Autism Awareness Day yesterday, Autism Hong Kong urged the government to ensure people with special needs have equal legal rights.


Autism Hong Kong said 70 percent of autistic patients suffer from varying degrees of intellectual disabilities.


Yu said judges and other judicial personnel do not necessarily have a basic understanding of the behavior and characteristics of mentally handicapped or autistic people.
