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.

ASP hosts the “Seminar on Developing Social Skills For Children With Autism”

ASP hosted the Seminar on Developing Social Skills For Children With Autism which was held in Bridges Foundation last 25 April 2015. The seminar included parents, teachers, and therapists.

Participants of the seminar

Ms. Jacklyn Ivy A. Reyna discussed about the skills on what to say to the children with autism in a politely and in a properly manner. She let one of the parents to read the script on how to make CWA calm down. The participants were asked to discuss each other about what they had experienced about their children with autism and how they handle it. One of the parents were asked to share her experiences thru drawings and story telling. Teacher Jax asked a participant in each group to share their experiences on how PWA do to other people such as keeping friends, introducing each other, telling what to do, and other things to do to other people with their photos/drawings as facing challenges.

Teacher Jax showed some video about how students did in the school and how a teacher should handle it. She let some participants share on what they usually said or do to their children.

“Topic is good social story task is great! Showing videos was good!”

“Thank you for a very good presentation. It gives me to become more creative up in scripts.”

“I learned a lot from today’s seminar! It’s very helpful for my students with autism and other related disorders especially the sample activities Teacher Jax presented.”
