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.

The Autism Society Philippines-Bacolod in partnership with the Special Educators Advocates Learning (SEAL) of the University of Saint La Salle-Bacolod (USLS-Bacolod) conducted a half-day echo seminar on the recently concluded Autism International Conference.

Last March 19, 2010, at the MM Auditorium B of the USLS a total of 65 participants composed of students, professionals (OT, Sped Teachers, College Professors), and parents, learned new issues and trends in autism research, treatments, and therapies.

Kent Matthew S. Paber, 9 years old, a student of the USLS Angel’s Center, formally opened the event with a prayer. The National Anthem was led by Reyshelle Tutop, a USLS student of education majoring in Special Education.

Ms. Patricia Escares, a professor at the University of UNO-Recoletos, discussed the first topic, “Designing & Carrying Out Early Intervention for 0-4years old”. Ms. Cherry Biaco, a professor of the USLS-Bacolod, followed with a presentation entitled “Behavior Management of Autism”.

Finally, Mr. David Karlo Equipaje, an occupational therapist, spoke of “Assessment & Interventions for Language & Communication Impairments in Autism Spectrum Disorder”. An open forum was offered to the participants after the lectures. The successful affair ended with closing remarks by Ms. May Amodia, one of the active members of ASP Bacolod and a respected educator in the field of autism here.

This summer, ASP Bacolod Chapter plans to implement Project: FREDI or “Free Diagnosis and Intervention” is an outreach program that aims to give free diagnosis and intervention to the children with ASD of underprivileged family.
