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.

Seminar Workshop on Response to Crisis Behavior

Tantrums, meltdowns and aggressive behaviors often occur with special needs children. Parents, teachers, caregivers, and anyone who interacts with the child should know how to respond to these events. This seminar-workshop will help participants understand the course of crisis behaviors, will provide tips on deescalating behaviors before they become meltdowns and provide practical tips on how to avoid injury for both child and adult when aggressive behaviors occur. This will be a whole day seminar-workshop. Since it will involve physical exercises which will require more open spaces, participants will be limited to 30. Only the first to register will be accommodated. Registered participants should come in comfortable attire which will allow them to move (jewelry or sharp accessories are discouraged). For those who will be unable to register for this session, they can join the next one in succeeding months.
