Our ILLC Experience By: Maria Cecilia B. Halili

When our son, Alexis, was diagnosed with autism at the age of 3, acceptance was never a problem for me and my husband. Defining our goals for Alexis was the next thing we did; and we came up with only one goal: "For him to be able to stand and live for himself when time comes." When I learned that ILLC will start to accept younger kids with special needs this School Year, I set an appointment with Sir Archie. After the meeting, I told my husband that my mind is set to enroll Alexis to ILLC - and we were not disappointed. Who would have thought that the once stressful activity of going to a supermarket with him would be an enjoyable activity for both of us now? He could now relate that Mango is our National Fruit or that Bangus is our National Fish. These he acquired thru the school's Home Application Program, wherein he got to experience and apply the lessons learned inside the classroom to his daily life activities. In the Modified Basic Education Program, he now enjoys studying with no pressure because lessons were taught at his own pace. My son still needs help in some aspects but we are not in a hurry; after all, learning is a lifelong process. For the school year that ended, we want to extend our special thanks to Sir Archie, Teacher Nina and most especially to Teacher Anna Margallo, Teacher Sam Pizarro and Kuya Ruel (Teacher Aide) for your love, passion and patience to kids like Alexis. We are looking forward to more fruitful years with you. ILLC has been truly devoted to kids / persons with special needs and also are truthfully working on their promise -- "We prepare your child for life."
