City of San Fernando Pampanga Chapter held a seminar-workshop on the basics of preparing home-based program for children with autism last 19 January  2013 at the event center of SM City Pampanga. The said event was part of the celebration of the 17th National Autism Consciousness Week.

This was attended by 23 parents, 4 professionals and 6 students. Its objective is to teach parents/ carers of the basic home program management skills.  Parents who attended the seminar were encouraged and gained knowledge on the topic. The participants need additional information on behavior management, teaching strategies before they can fully understand and implement the home program. On the seminar evaluation form, participants expressed satisfaction and many requested for a siblings workshop.

Mr Mike Collado from the CSWDO-CSFP came to give support. The speaker of the said seminar-workshop is Ms Joy Ofrecia, Chapter President of City of San Fernando Pampanga Chapter, a teacher by profession and a mother to Juris, a child with autism.

ASP San Fernando Pampanga Chapter would like to thank the people who helped, donated and supported them during the event -- Widus Leisure Intl, Mayor Oca S. Rodriguez thru CSWDO-CSFP and University of the Assumption.
