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.

August 14 Bacoor Chapter Seminar - Workshop

in partnership with

SPED Department

invites Bacoor and Imus-based ASP members to a
General Assembly and Seminar on

"Overcoming Sensory and Learning Needs
of Children with ASD"

This seminar/workshop is specifically designed for parents, teachers, therapists and caregiver. It aims to provide an overview of the underlying sensory and learning challenges that influences learning and performance of students with ASD. Special emphasis will be on analyzing when the function of behavior communicates a sensory based need and recognizing the learning needs of students with ASD.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

** Walk away with practical everyday intervention and solution such as use of “naturally occurring activities” to accommodate the child/student special sensory needs. This means activities that they can be easily incorporated into the child’s routine within the home and school environment.

** Learn on how to create simple visual supports and environmental modification both in the classroom and at home in developing more effective and nurturing environment for students with ASD.

** Use Visual Supports to increase attending, motivation, social skills and increase opportunities for learning for students with ASD.
