Special Learning, Inc. to Bring World-Class Education and Treatment Programs for Special Needs to the Philippines
Date:4/30/2013

CHICAGO, Illinois (PRWEB) April 30, 2013

Special Learning, Inc., the leading global provider of comprehensive solutions and educational resources for the autism, Down syndrome and special needs community, announced today that it is extending its world class education and treatment services to the Philippines with the opening of two new therapy centers. These two new programs, opening in June, will utilize the best of Western evidence-based practices to treat and deliver exceptional education outcomes to individuals with autism, Down syndrome, and other behavioral disabilities throughout Metro Manila and its surrounding regions.

Through the joint program, Special Learning USA, a subsidiary of Special Learning, Inc., has partnered with The One Algon Place, a mental health treatment facility, to bring an intensive behavior intervention (IBI) program to the community. Located just outside of Metro Manila within a private, resort-style setting, the One Algon Place program will provide both inpatient and outpatient behavior treatment using the principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy.

In addition, Special Learning USA is establishing a first-of-its-kind Special Education (SPED) Program for preschool age children at Fort Bonifacio, located in the heart of Metro Manila and among the country’s most renowned international schools.

“We are excited and humbled to be bringing advanced treatment and education solutions to individuals with special needs in the Philippines,” said Karen Chung, founder and chief executive officer of Special Learning Inc. “A child with behavioral special needs, autism, or Down Syndrome may experience compromised cognitive, social and communication abilities as a result of the disorder that can affect them in many different ways. Our goal is to bridge that gap by providing outstanding treatment services delivered by skilled clinicians.”

In partnership with Step By Step, a center-based treatment facility in the US, Special Learning USA is sending over a team of Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) and skilled behavior technicians to lead the programs.

Aside from its core services, the two new centers at One Algon and Fort Bonifacio will provide a host of related services, including:

  •     Home Intervention Services
  •     Skills Assessments
  •     Psychological Assessment and Diagnosis
  •     Individualized Treatment Plans
  •     Parent Training
  •     Special Accommodations for International Students
  •     Boarding Services Available (One Algon Place Center Only)

The SPED program is open to preschool-aged children from 2 Years to kindergarten. The IBI program will accept children as young as 18 Months up to young adults. Both programs open in June with enrollment starting in May.

“There’s a clear need for the types of services Special Learning USA is offering to children affected by autism and other behavioral disabilities in places such as the Philippines,” Chung said. “Through these two programs, we’ll be able to make the best in treatment and education for special needs available and accessible for families who need it the most.”

This collaboration further solidifies Special Learning as a leading global provider of solutions for the special needs community, especially in areas where current offerings are insufficient.
