Autism Society Philippines is hosting back to back seminars on 26 September 2009.
A. FACILITATING COMMUNICATION AT HOME AND SCHOOL (9:00am-12:00nn)
Speaker: Ms Kate Reyes
This lecture is designed to help parents and professionals in facilitating communication and language acquisition at home and school. It will include discussions of play and language as well as the different techniques used for achieving language milestones.
B. PREPARING CWA FOR BETTER HANDWRITING (1:30pm-4:30pm)
Good handwriting is needed by students in order to display what they know and advance through grade levels. When training children with poor handwriting, adults usually have them write over and over, hoping they eventually “catch” it and improve the quality of their work. This workshop describes the factors that affect handwriting – motor skills, sensory skills, ergonomic factors and behavioral issues. Developing foundational skills will result in better handwriting as the end-product
