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.

Developing Language and Reading Skills at Home

The webinar will cover practical tips and strategies on how to support language acquisition and reading skills development for children with autism in the home setting. The webinar aims to guide parents in choosing developmentally appropriate reading materials and to equip them with skills in conducting read-aloud, performing vocabulary building activities, and facilitating oral and written language tasks.

The ASP Education and Empowerment Program serves as a platform to educate Filipino parents and professionals on the various interventions, modalities and theories surrounding Autism Spectrum Disorder, through monthly seminars and workshops.
