SM Cares and Autism Partnership Philippines present: The Transition to School for Children with Autism Conference

Over 600 educators, parents, and advocates come together for the Autism Partnerships (AP) conference on the transition to school for children with Autism. Attended by education industry leaders that talked about having the essential skills for the best outcome of treatment for ASD children.

Children with ASD often have difficulties in the learning process of behavior, social interaction and communication skills. Thus, each progress made in different stages of the child’s life is important to their parents; from non-verbal to verbal, from preparing for school to adapting to school life, and from learning social aspects to maintaining meaningful friendships.

Parents and teachers need a systematic, effective and natural way of teaching these essential skills within the “golden age” for the best outcome of treatment for ASD children.

In this ASD conference, AP Director, Toby Mountjoy, shared his 20 years of expertise and experience in ABA treatment, and together with the principal of Aoi Pui School, Kathleen Man, and experienced Behavioral Consultant, Raymond Fung, to discuss the ABA strategies and critical school readiness for children with ASD.
