On-hand were respected speakers like Dr. Alexis Reyes, Lady Suarez, Mae Catherine Sadicon, Sunny Velasco, Juan Rapadas, Cecilia Sicam, Ma.Teresa Villanueva and Rita Grace Villadolid.

A participant shares, “It's nice to attend such seminar. It was like a family support group, especially if parents who have PWA kids share their experiences. It gives us hope, strength and will make us a better parents. The event gave us perspectives of autism which will help us understand and appreciate our child with autism.”
