ASP Binan hits the ground running

ASP Binan, one of Autism Society Philippines newer chapters, has been spearheading initiatives for the betterment of the lives of families who live with autism within their community.

The TDK Philippines Corporation headed by its President Kenichiro Arimura sponsored the Sensory Room at the Binan Elementary School (BES) SpEd Center last 16 April 2015. Present on the happy occasion were Binan City Mayor Marlyn Alonte-Naguiat, Division Superintendent Marites A. Ibanez, District Supervisor Mary Ann L. Tatlongmaria and BES Principal Pilar I. De Castro, ASP Binan Chapter President Carolyn Souza Sumague and TDK Philippines officers. ASP Binan Chapter will be among those who will benefit from a sensory room, designed to develop a special learners' sense through special music, materials and colors. The room is an effective therapy environment for children with various exceptionalities.

The Chapter hosted its first seminar on Sensory Integration and Behavior Modification Techniques for Children with Special Needs last 23 May 2015.



The Chapter facilitated the donation of three (3) sets of brand new computer to the SpEd School of Binan from the Supreme Student Council of University of Perpetual Help-Dr. Jose G. Tamayo Medical University -- via the efforts of Carlos Miguel S. Sumague, 5th Year BSOT and VP-External Affairs of the organization.
