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.

Structured Teaching at Home Poster


Structured teaching is a system for: organizing space; change of activities with schedules; work study systems to facilitate learning process; and material organization to promote independence. Its primary purpose is to improve adaptation of persons with autism by modifying or structuring the environment to accommodate learning challenges of those in the spectrum.

Long before the “new normal”, our resource person has been consistently practicing structured teaching at home. This zoominar features application of structured teaching at home from the resource person's personal experiences with her son on the autism spectrum and those of other families she met.

Participants will also be given practical tips on how to create doable routines, conducive learning spaces and visuals supports in small spaces at home.
