An Invitation to a Training Workshop by Marlou de Vera

Ms. Landa A. Bautista, M.A.Ed., Executive Director of The Learning Center, Inc. (TLC) invites you to “STRUCTURING FOR SUCCESS: Autism, Behavior, & Unique Learning Styles”, a Training-Workshop by Marlou De Vera. The workshop will be held on July 18 and 19, 2014 from 8 am – 4 pm at Assumption College in Makati City in celebration of the Disability Month.

ABOUT THE TRAINING-WORKSHOP

“Structuring for Success” is a two-day training-workshop that aims to provide valuable information, visual strategies, and tools to address behavior and unique learning styles of students with autism and other challenges at home and in school. Day 1 will focus on Home Training while Day 2 will focus on School Training. The training-workshop will emphasize solution-oriented strategies as parents, professionals, and related support personnel lay the groundwork toward success for these individuals. More importantly, it will provide hands-on experience in creating meaningful and individualized visual structure and implementing structured tools to facilitate skills in different developmental areas. The ultimate goal is to identify behaviors, utilize appropriate visual strategies, and pave the way for the individual with special needs to thrive, not just survive!
