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.

October 16 Seminar - Workshop

Caring for the Caregivers
(Equipping the caregivers with proper knowledge, skills
and attitude in managing autism)

9:00am - 4:00pm

This seminar-workshop is designed for caregivers (yayas, yayos and house parents of institutions caring for children with autism). It will discuss the proper caring for children with autism (CWA), 24/7 can be a roller coaster ride of emotion and often, it leaves the caregivers exhausted and drained in all aspect of their lives. As a result, they have high levels of stress and get easily burned out which lead to the caregivers’ irritability, impatient, lack of self confidence and commitment in constantly nurturing a CWA. To help our caregivers accept and embrace their crucial role in the life of a CWA, proper training in the management of autism is a vital step in caring for our caregivers. Hopefully, this empowerment session will lead to changing the views and most especially the attitude of our caregivers toward their wards.
