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.

2nd Seminar on Understanding and Managing Kids with ASD

Known for providing rigorous and extensive review courses in licensure exams for teachers and nurses, the N.G Review and Training Center, Inc. (NGRTCI) in Jaro, Iloilo City embarked on a worthwhile activity last September 18, 2010. The Center organized a whole day autism seminar as a response to the increasing desire for the community to further understand this baffling/ complex condition.

Ms. Rosalyn Sorongon

Ms. My Sorongon, a SPED professional and Autism Society Philippines’ (ASP) accredited trainer flew from Manila to Iloilo City for the seminar. More than 80 participants joined the activity to gain proper knowledge and updates on the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). General teaching and behavior management strategies were also imparted to the participants in response to the several questions they raised in this area.

The lively exchange of experiences and opinions, and the attentiveness of the participants signified a certain level of commitment in Ilonggos to continuously understand and eventually accept people with ASD.

With the overwhelming success of the first seminar, a second one is scheduled on November 13 Saturday from 9AM to 5PM at the Sta. Isabel International School, Q. Abeto St., Manduriao, Iloilo City. The seminar coming is sponsored by the NG Review and Training Center, Inc., Sta. Isabel Educational Foundation, Inc., and ASP Iloilo City chapter with the support of ASP National Office.

Hope we can have this seminar here in Manila? A lot of us SPED practitioners and parents are interested in a seminar that shows us more practice than theories. thanks
