Post-Conference Workshop on Basic Management for Children with Special Needs
The Basic Management for Children with Special Needs is a designed program project by Mrs. Elsa L. Gella, Education Program Coordinator in SPED to all children with autism who are enrolled in public schools in the City of San Juan. This program was successfully sponsored by the Rotary Club of San Juan East and other stakeholders. Mr. Michael Joseph G. Alejandra, Occupational Therapist OTRP, ROT was the speaker of 10 days half training workshop on basic management.
Last January 21, 2016 was the date to conduct the post-conference on this training workshop at the Division Conference Hall. Participants are teachers, pupils and parents coming from Kabayanan SPED Center and Pinaglabanan SPED Center. The Brgy. Social Workers, Rotary Club San Juan East and Division Personnel are also gracing this momentous ending event.
The program starts with a registration to assigned committees Ms. Katrine Claire Ligunas and Ms. Banny Joyce C. Trinidad, both SPED teachers from two public schools Kabayanan and Pinaglabanan SPED Center. Opening prayer and nationalistic song was conducted by Ms. Ligunas teacher from Pinaglabanan Elementary School. It was followed by the acknowledgement of visitors and guests by Ms. Evelyn Y. Yun, World Class President of Rotary Club San Juan East. Supposedly, the welcome remark was given by Dr. Lydia C. Abeja, Chief CID, but unfortunately she was not able to perform her task due to an official meeting. Luckily, Dr. Joel T. Torrecampo, OIC, Office of the Schools Division Superintendent rendered the welcome remarks accompanied by the inspirational message to every participant. Mrs. Elsa L. Gella, the Division SPED Coordinator gave the statement of purpose on how significant this seminar workshop is.
The speaker for this post-conference is Mr. Michael Joseph G. Alejandra, Licensed Occupational Therapist who is well-known on duties and responsibilities of catering children with special needs. He shared his knowledge and skills on the land of Occupational Therapy to everyone of us. He taught us some point of views to remember in times of assessing pupils with disability. The cob-webbed that bear in mind of individual had given a solution. Having this kind of seminar-workshops really helps us to educate the dos and don’ts handling persons with disability.
The program ended with the giving of certificates and picture taking.
