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.

Seminar on Understanding our Children with Special Needs

Last March 10, 2012, ASP-Laguna Chapter conducted a seminar entitled “Understanding our Children with Special Needs” at Holy Rosary College – Special Department in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. This was in response to the school’s request for a parenting seminar for parents, grandfather and grandmother, and caregivers of their students.

Participants of the seminar

The seminar was divided into two sessions. The morning session is composed of parents whose children are 7 years old and below. The main concern of this group revolved around the challenging behaviors displayed by their children and the difficulty in using language at home and at school. The afternoon session was for parents having children whose are 8 years old and above with different disabilities. Living skills and independence at home and school were the main concerns of this group.
