CHED Endorsement Dated May 23, 2017Overview: The TEACCH (Treatment and Education of Autistic and Related Communication -Handicapped Children) approach utilizes the relative strengths of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) (Schopler et al., 1995) and is appropriate for individuals of all ages and developmental levels. TEACCH uses the principles of structured teaching to support individuals with ASD in understanding their world better and enables them to be more independent and productive in an inclusive setting. The TEACCH program was developed by Eric Schopler in the late 1970s and is administered through the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA. The TEACCH method provides students with developmentally appropriate structure and organization in the learning environment, which moderates challenges students with ASD may encounter. The TEACCH philosophy recognizes autism as a lifelong condition and does not aim to cure but to respond to autism as a culture. Core tenets of the TEACCH philosophy include an understanding of the effects of autism on individuals; use of assessment to assist program design around individual strengths, skills, interests and needs; enabling the individual to be as independent as possible; working in collaboration with parents and families. Objectives: At the end of the seminar-workshop, the participants will:
