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.

9:00AM - 12:00NN

By: Ignatius Peh and Bimal Rai

This seminar will discuss about the child with special needs, understanding more about Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Autism and ADHD. It will also discuss intervention strategies and support referral and psychological services, and training for parents and teachers

Ignatius Peh is the founder of linguistic council and is credited with shaping the special needs industry in Singapore, Malaysia and Jakarta. His trainings in counseling, special education and psychology helped bring professionals together to work on his vision to provide strategies for teachers and to initiate awareness and intervention programs in these countries. He serves as an ambassador of change and his main role now is to spread the word on how children with special needs can receive attention. He also travels to Asian countries working with government agencies and NGO's such as the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Community Youth and Sports in Singapore, National Autistic Society of Malaysia, and Dyslexia Association in Malaysia and Hope Foundation in Jakarta to further the cause of special needs children.

Bimal Rai MA (AppPsych,) DISE, BSc (Hons), BA (SocSci), MSPS, a Educational Psychologist and RDI® Program Certified Consultant. Bimal Rai has over 15 years of experience working with a wide range of children with special needs, including Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and Developmental Delay. After graduating from Monash University with an Honors Degree in Psychology, Bimal began his working career as a special education teacher with M.I.N.D.S. This experience laid the foundation for him to learn about the many and diverse conditions special needs children have, and their developmental and learning difficulties. After his stint as an educational psychologist for the Child Development of K.K. Women’s & Children’s Hospital (KKH) in Singapore, he started a private practice at Reach Therapy Center. Currently, the bulk of his work is geared towards the RDI® Program. In 2007, Bimal became one of the first RDI® Program Certified Consultants in Asia. He was one of the most applauded speakers during the 10th National Conference on Autism in 20017. RDI® has allowed him to educate families about autism from a developmental approach. It has been meaningful for him to see the family and the child develop a closer relationship while still remediating the core issues of autism.

This Seminar aims to provide attendees with an understanding of the Relationship Development Intervention® (RDI) Program. RDI® is a cognitive-developmental therapy, which addresses the core deficits of individuals with Autism, Asperger and other relationship based disorders. This seminar is meant to inspire parents in helping their ASD kids develop meaningful relationships and help them flourish in social situations. Therapists and Special Education Teachers will also benefit a great deal in learning the tools of RDI ® towards helping their ASD students be more engaging and active during lessons
