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.

Facilitating Communication in the Home Setting

Facilitating Communication in the Home Setting: Parent Roles and Family Involvement
25 May 2019
9:00am - 12:00nn

Communication is key for everyday interaction across different settings. In children with ASD, speech, language and communication are skills that need to be developed. When a child with ASD is referred for speech therapy, some parents are clueless about this type of intervention and how they can help their children.

This seminar is geared towards educating parents and families of children with ASD about speech therapy. It aims to help parents and families understand their role in helping their children develop and improve speech, language and communication skills. It also aims to empower parents and families by helping them identify everyday opportunities and learning strategies that would facilitate communication in the home setting.
