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.

May 28 Back to Back Seminars

Inclusion of Children with Autism in the Regular Classroom
28 May 2011, 9:00 am - 12:00 nn
Quality Life Discoveries # 70 20th Avenue, Project 4, Quezon City

This seminar will discuss how schools can effectively adjust their curricular framework to accept students with disabilities, including children with autism. The seminar will also present ways of accessing the regular education curriculum and how students, with and without disabilities are evaluated. Participants will learn different approaches on how to make ALL students function in an inclusive classroom environment.

Differentiated Instruction
28 May 2011, 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Quality Life Discoveries # 70 20th Avenue, Project 4, Quezon City

Differentiated instruction (DI) lies at the heart of inclusive education. The two terms are not synonymous. A school cannot say that it is inclusive without applying the tenets of differentiated instruction. A school may likewise say it is using DI but its goal may not be truly inclusive in the manner we understand inclusion to be. But the philosophy of inclusion becomes real only when instruction is differentiated to address the diverse learning needs of students.

The topic includes a discussion on the nature and basic principles of DI. There will be a demonstration on how DI can be done within the classroom, with illustration on how content, process, and outcome of instruction are managed through the flexible use of time, materials, groupings, and instruction. DI is for all students, not just for students with special learning needs.
