Speech Therapy Made Easy

By: Cath Genovia, ASP Program Assistant


Autism Society Philippines (ASP) recently held its regular monthly seminar last Saturday, October 1, 2011 at Asian Social Institute in Malate, Manila. ASP Executive Director, Ranil Sorongon introduced our resource speaker, Ms. Kate Reyes.


The seminar-workshop was designed for parents of children with autism. ASP and Teacher Kate Reyes, the resource speaker aimed to equip the participants with knowledge and understanding of speech, language and communication. It also aimed to help the participants identify communication models, and show how the logistics at home affect communication. And more importantly to identify hindrances that would maximize the child’s communication skills.

These are some of the comments of the participants with regards to the speaker. The 34 participants mostly parents were also given some activities and exercises that made the seminar-workshop more interacting.
