The Wider Image: "Music is their language": school gives autistic Chinese youth a voice
Zu Wenbao, 23, stands as his mother Zhao Guorong, 59, talks to him at a market fair before his performance onstage with members of his band Star Kids, who like him are all adults with autism spectrum disorder, in Beijing, China September 24, 2022. Zu is one of the 14 million people in China who have autism spectrum disorder, a developmental disability caused by differences in the brain. Despite laws to ensure the integration of people with autism, many in China know little about the disorder and support remains lacking, experts say.
