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.

The Miller Method Autism Intervention Program: Possibilities put into Practice
9:30am – 12:00pm

The Miller Method is a cognitive-developmental approach and incorporates developing capacity for using language. It uses the child’s behavioral repertoire and transforms these, even if they don’t seem to serve any purpose, into something functional, instead of extinguishing them. This session will highlight key aspects of the methodology, intervention strategies, assessment and evaluation and comparisons to other methods such as ABA. In addition, Dr. Mastrangelo will present some of the latest research findings on the importance of self-regulation and sensory integration.
