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.

Workshop on Applied Behavioral Analysis

The seminar - workshop will tackle the principles and theories of Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA), one of the most widely used method in managing persons within the autism spectrum disorder. A workshop will also be conducted to further understand ABA.

Unwanted behavior is more often than not difficult to address. Fortunately, the science of Behavior Analysis has provided us insight on how to scientifically address different behaviors by performing a Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA). Performing the procedures of FBA assists in determining the underlying causes of a specific behavior by identifying the functions and choices of behavior displayed by an individual with autism.
