The participants of the seminar


Participants have gained vital information and a deeper understanding of the reasons behind the behaviors displayed by their child or student with autism. It has also gained them knowledge about the strategies on how to implement programs in order to address sensorial and behavioral issues brought about by autism.


Teacher Bonnet Santos, a Regular School Principal, said that the module is a great help not just to SPED teachers but to regular teachers as well, as there are some behaviors relating to sensory processing that even typically developing children display. Daddy Jerex Quintino, a father of a 4 year old boy with autism said “we feel so blessed attending the seminar”.
