Abstract

The Improving Plan for Special Education in Phase II (2017–2020) proposes to accelerate the development of special education at the non-compulsory education stage and strive to increase the opportunities for the disabled to receive non-compulsory education. After completing the 9-year compulsory education, children with special needs at regular schools can choose to continue to study at high schools or at secondary vocational education schools. More children with special needs choose vocational education instead of high school education as an extension of compulsory education. This chapter highlighted the continuing education situation for adolescents with ASD in China.
