The 4th Annual Special Education Network in Asia (SENIA) Manila Conference was a success! Hosted by Brent International School Manila last April 25, 2015, the 4th Annual SENIA Manila Conference offered 2 plenary sessions and 9 workshops for over 120 participants. Plenary sessions involved topics such as “The Impact of Anxiety on Student’s Learning and Behavior” presented by Dr. Ann Helmus and “Social Cognition: The iLAUGH Model” presented by Jenny de Guzman and Lea Infante.
Workshops presenters from various friends of SENIA schools made the conference rich with learning opportunities. There were sessions on co-teaching, IB accommodations, executive functioning, five love languages, mindfulness, restorative discipline and management strategies.
The conference closed with a touching session led by the SENIA Youth members. Through an experiential activity, the SENIA Youth allowed participants to experience what it is like to have learning challenges.
The SENIA Board would like to thank Ms. Priscilla Leighton and Ms. Patti Valley of Brent International School Manila for organizing this year’s conference. Heartfelt thanks also goes out to the speakers who shared their expertise at no cost. Specifically, we thank Dr. Ann Helmus, Jenny De Guzman, Shelly Maldonado, Stella Alcantara, Melissa Mendoza, Ericson Perez, Derek Pierce, Marisol Maranan, Lea Infante, Hanna Naing, Karl Mejia, Rizzy Javier, Leanne Martinez, Catherine Deen and Priscilla Leighton.
