AP Outreach Program: Complimentary Talks

AP Singapore senior staff regularly conducts talks to help raise awareness for autism and help families and individuals as part of our outreach to the community.

Early Intervention is the key to obtaining the best outcome for the child. Hence our complimentary talks aim to provide basic knowledge on symptoms of autism and equip parents, educators and related professionals working with young children with the necessary skills to cope with problems that arise from autism.

Topics and Content for the Complimentary Series 2020

Feb 29 – Understanding and managing your child’s behaviors

Behaviors in children with Autism (ASD) can range from acting out behaviors like tantrums, aggression to self to passive behaviors like engaging in self-stimulation and a lack of response. If they are not understood and managed, the child’s learning and development can be affected.

In this talk, we will:

  1. Examine the different types of behaviors, how some are learned and identify why they occur.
  2. Share techniques that will proactively address disruptive behaviors to prepare a child to be more ready to learn.

 July 25 – Encouraging your child to communicate spontaneously

Spontaneous language is a language that is initiated voluntarily. Often, children with Autism may be able to speak and respond to questions but face challenges speaking spontaneously. Teaching children to communicate spontaneously is a great way to increase their desire to talk and help them communicate their needs more effectively.

In this talk, we will:

  1. Explore and discuss the range of ideas designed to increase a student’s spontaneous speech and interaction in different scenarios
  2. Share how spontaneous speech and interaction can be incorporated into a child’s daily routine.
