Tian Huiping, founder of the Star and Rain Education Institute for Autism, had rather humble beginnings. The institute, the only school and outreach program in China with particular focus of educating autistic children, helps more than 3,000 students a day of all ages, many of whom traveled hundreds of miles to take the 11-week course on offer. Tian is not an entrepreneur looking for a niche Chinese market in autism. She isn't the most optimistic person in China either.
When her son was diagnosed with autism, she planned on poisoning herself and her son. Before her institute was founded 15 years ago, help from the government was minimal, usually "help" came in the form of persuading parents to have another child by taking advantage of a loophole in the One-Child Policy concerning parents of disabled children. Luckily for China, Tian did not poison herself (nor her child) and instead stumbled upon a pamphlet written by the Taiwan Autism Association on the basics of teaching children with autism. With six autistic children, including her own child, she began with a kindergarten class and saw hope, albeit only a little bit, before the kindergarten had to close down due to financial troubles. Yet that hope carried her a long way, transforming her from a pessimistic mother to an educator.

Tian Huiping (Hope) and her son, Yang Tao
In 1993, having been raising an autistic son on her own, Tian Huiping (Hope) founded Beijing Stars & Rain Education Institute for Autism, the first non-profit organization for autism in China.
According to Tian, autism is seldom diagnosed in China due to the general public's lack of education on the problem and their minimal acknowledgment of it.
Tian explained that a lot of autistic children are kicked out of school in China because the teachers are not equipped with the resources or the training to teach them. The parents are then stuck with not only caring for their child, but for educating them, she said.
