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.

Meltdowns and aggressive behaviors often occur with individuals on the autism spectrum. This is a way for them to communicate something that is personally distressing. Parents, teachers, caregivers, and anyone who interacts with the individual should know how to respond to these events and help them through a tough experience -- while minimizing physical trauma and destruction to property. This workshop will help participants understand the cause of crisis behaviors, will provide tips on deescalating behaviors before they become meltdowns and provide practical tips on how to avoid injury for both the persons on the autism spectrum and those around them when aggressive behaviors occur. Participants who attended the October 19 workshop on Behavior Management Planning Part 1 shall be given priority. This learning opportunity is exclusively for ASP members -- parents, family members and professionals with clinical exposure to individuals on the autism spectrum.

This workshop will involve physical movement; which is why participants will be limited to 30. Registered participants should come in comfortable attire which will allow them to move -- jewelry or sharp accessories are discouraged.
