ILLC’s Continuing Education Series

Before the S.Y. 2014 - 2015 started, the ILLC teachers underwent several trainings and seminars to better equip them for the coming school year. The teachers attended several in-house seminars with relevant topics such as Behavior Modification Techniques (BMT), Top-Down and Bottom-Up Approaches, Sensory Integration, Clinical Reasoning, Speech and Language Stimulation, and Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) among many others. Another topic that really helped the teachers was the RDI talk given by the mother of Tejus, Mrs. Chitra Sharathchandra. Relationship Development Intervention or RDI taught the teachers to let their students think critically and not just rely on the teacher’s prompts and cues. Dr. Vanessa Cainghug of The Medical City talked about psychiatric conditions which have a high comorbidity possibility with developmental conditions. The Mandaluyong Fire Department also conducted a lecture for the teachers on emergency evacuation in case of fires and other natural disasters.

Aside from these in-house lectures, several ILLC teachers attended seminars outside of the school. Last November 14 at the Mind Museum, our ILLC SPED Coordinators, Nina Almeda and Rikka Polintan, attended a talk by Dr. Ned Sahin, the creator of software programs for individuals with autism that may be used with Google Glasses. Teachers Nina and Rikka also attended a seminar on Positive Discipline conducted by the Save the Children NGO, as invited by Mrs. Lorna Umali, mother of Aingee. Moreover, Google for Education found a way to help educators in Mandaluyong City know more about technology specifically with the use of the said search engine and its apps. Teachers Ysa Bagabaldo and Andi Dimaculangan represented ILLC at the Google for Educators seminar which was held at the Jose Rizal University on February 21, 2015. Teacher Anna Margallo attended the NCR Education’s Roadmap: In the context of ASEAN Integration seminar, a channel for all private schools to be updated with all the current projects and plans of DepEd for the ongoing implementation of the K-12 program. The said seminar was held on Feb. 28, 2015.
All in all, the trainings and seminars given to the teachers refreshed their pre-service training and also equipped them and prepared them for their in-service training.
