In my pursuit to learn more and to help my child develop into an independent individual, I try to attend selected seminars conducted by ASP. The Seminar Workshop on Autism-Friendly Teaching Environment (Structured Teaching at Home and in School) held last 21 March 2015 at Pasay SPED Center has given me concrete information and impact.
With the energetic speaker Ma’am Dang Koe sharing her personal experiences and knowledge, it served as a reminder and guide to the parents and teachers who participated. As a parent who personally attends to my kid’s developmental needs, it helped me to figure out what’s missing in my present strategy to teach my son the daily living skills and at the same time made me realize I’m on the right track. Surely, it helped the participants come up with new ideas. It will serve as a reminder that we are raising children with autism to become an independent adult and not a child
What a great time I had at the seminar! Thank you to the organizers, the ASP Pasay City Chapter and the ASP UP CAMP Manila Chapter and most especially to the speaker Mrs. Erlinda U. Koe!
The seminar was attended by 11 Parents, 1 Relative and 12 Professionals. The seminar was conducted as part of the training for the ASP Early Steps from ASP UP CAMP Manila and Pasay chapters.
