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.

ASP Laguna Concludes Summer Training Program

ASP Laguna recently concluded its Summer Training Program entitled “Teaching Children with Autism,” last May 7, 2010. The 20-day intensive training began on April 12 and was participated by three mothers of children with autism.

The three mothers, Mrs. Sharon Roque of Paete, Mrs. Jane Lumbo of Sta. Rosa City and Mrs. Riza Enriquez of San Pablo City; have decided to give up work outside home to become full time caregivers of their children.

The centers which hosted this year’s observation tours and immersion classes were Hope Intervention Center, Calamba City; Paete Intervention Center for Autism and Related Disorders (PICARD); Love and Hope Intervention Center, Liliw; First Steps Intervention; Therapy Center, Calamba City; and The Learning Center, Merville, Parañaque City.

Consider that most modern teachers learn how to practice their trade through an educational background that encourages a somewhat rigid set of approaches. For instance, teachers may focus on structured instructional methods that tend to include things like classroom work, individual work at their desk or table, and some hands-on techniques.
