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.
The Unilab Foundation, Inc. spearheaded Project Inclusion which aims to accommodate and facilitate the employment of persons with intellectual disabilities (PIDs). The DLSU-Center for Business Research and Development research team conducted a series of consultations and collaborations with various special education schools, ILLC included, as well as companies who currently advocate for the workplace inclusion of PIDs. The Unilab Foundation, led by its dynamic head Ms. Rhodora Fresnedi and through the efforts of its coordinator Mr. Grant Javier, has come up with a Human Resource Manual for Empowering Persons with Intellectual Disabilities which is envisioned to be practical and informative to enable employers to acquire information that could assist them in facilitating the accommodation of PIDs in their respective organizations. The HR Manual draft was presented to the stakeholders on February 13, 2015 at the Bayanihan Center, Pasig City.
As an ultimate exercise of fun and learning, the 6th ILLC Friendship Cup was held on January 30, 2009 at the Camp Crame Gymnasium. There were three teams: Red Dragons, Orange Tigers and Yellow Lions. The program started with a Lighting of the Torch headed by Kenny Sy, Nelson Briones, Timothy Roy Israel, Michael Chang, and Paco De Leon. It was a whole day of fun activities, vigorous obstacles and dynamic games that surely fired up all the teams.
Each team prepared set of cheers to boost their team‘s morale. In the end, the Orange Tigers bested the other two teams, garnering First Place in ten of eighteen games, seconded by the Red Dragons while third prize over-all goes to the Yellow Lions. Congratulations, Orange Tigers Team!
Christmas is not just a time to buy and receive material gifts—it is also a time for remembering that during the First Christmas, Baby Jesus was born on a manger, devoid of extravagance, expensive gifts and material wealth. This was the message imparted during the annual Christmas program held on December 19, 2008. Dubbed, ―The ILLC Christmas Story,‖ this year‘s program showcased talents of ILLC students. Ina Mesina, AC Alvaran and Jhona Nisperos acted as the main actresses in the play written and directed by Teachers Nina Almeda and Shary Espiritu. Class E‘s Parol bagged the Best Christmas Class Parol. Hand-made by the students, the parol was covered with bottle labels while its tail was composed of Christmas balls made of sinamay thread. In line with the Christmas tradition, there was also an exchange of gifts among students. Sumptuous food from Abelardo‘s and KFC was served for lunch, completing the gaiety of the Christmas celebration.
November 30, 2008 is now in the history of ILLC as it set a milestone for the PTA. Held at the Camp Crame Multipurpose Hall, this was the PTA‘s paramount project. It served as a fundraiser for the Job Readiness Program. The event led by Mrs. Mawie Aglipay and the rest of the PTA was hosted by Mr. Louie Jocson and Mr. Chuck de Leon. The PTA was able to collect double of their targeted amount in ticket sales and corporate sponsorships. Selected mommies were tapped to perform during the intermission number. The ravishing mothers danced to the tune of Stayin‘ Alive. They truly showed the crowd that they are the Queens of the dance floor! Not to be outdone, the teachers performed a 70s themed medley composed of well-loved dance hits which caused a thundering excitement in the hall. The Grand Prize of P20,000.00 was brought home by Ate Inday, the caregiver of Bradley Ty. Congrats, Ate Inday!
