In July 2019, International Medical University (IMU) together with Louis Center for Children with Special Needs conducted a workshop on,
“Identifying and Treating Autism, ADHD and Sensory Issues”
Among those who attended this workshop were doctors, psychologists, parents, special education teachers, mainstream schoolteachers and members of certain NGOs.
Many result-orientated Autism Intervention Centers from across Malaysia sent their representative participants to gain knowledge in order to impart and implement the crucial practices taught at this workshop.
This fun and interactive workshop went on for almost 6 hours. The participants were provided with breakfast and lunch.
The program consisted of brief talks, practical hands on activities, group-based case studies, Q&A sessions and more.
Our group of attendees were very active and keen participants. Questions from participants on the application of the procedures taught were encouraging.
The main goal of the workshop was to empower our attendees with knowledge and skills that they could use in a real-life setting.
Some of the questions that were answered by workshop included:
Does my child have Autism or is this ‘normal’ behavior?
How do we identify Autism?
Sensory Issues in Autism-What is the connection?
Is it important to identify and address the sensory issues our children face?
