The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of persons on the autism spectrum disorder. We envision a society where Filipinos on the spectrum become the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive, socially-accepted citizens of an Autism-OK Philippines.

Typhoon Ondoy attended ASP Seminar on Communication

Six participants ignored the storm signal for Typhoon Ondoy last September 26 to attend the seminar on “Facilitating Communication at Home and School.” Like a true professional, Speaker Kate Reyes, speech pathologist in Independently, a family centered clinic in San Pascual, Batangas, gave the lecture despite heavy rains.

Teacher Kate designed her lecture to help parents and professionals in facilitating communication and language acquisition at home and school. She included the discussions of play and language as well as the different techniques used for achieving language milestones.

By lunch time, areas around the seminar venue (Asian Social Institute) was already flooded. ASP Executive Director had to cancel the afternoon session on “Preparing CWA for Better Handwriting,” by Occupational Therapist Anna Liza Yap-Tan of SkillBuilders. This seminar will be rescheduled sometime in 2010.

Nice post. Thanks for sharing. I hope that preventative measures can be put in place soon. One thing that can be done which costs nothing is each individual take responsibility for their garbage and put it where it belongs instead of throwing it all over the streets, rivers, and everywhere else.
