Title: Feedback on SPED schools
Post by: pinkyn on October 07, 2008, 04:42:36 pm
To moms with special kids,

Hi! I started this topic to pay forward the school which encouraged us to get early intervention for my son who was diagnosed recently with Pervasive Developmental Disorder-Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS). We had a second opinion with another developmental pediatrician and this time the diagnosis is Mild Global Developmental Delay and Delayed Language Disorder to consider ADHD. Even though their diagnosis are different, their recommendations are the same and both doctors and the preschool share the belief that early intervention will help a lot in overcoming the disorder. My son's preschool is called Kids 'R Us and it's the teachers' periodic assessment and during the one-on-one parent-teacher meeting that they convinced us to seek help. So, for those living within Marikina, Antipolo and Cainta areas you can contact Kids 'R Us at tel: 250-0488 and cel #09194348354.

For those who know of SPED schools, therapy centers, clinics, activity areas that you have good or bad feedbacks, kindly post them here so that our special kids need not go through unnecessary experiences.

HI mommy pinkyn.. ask ko lang sino doctors ng anak mo.. kasi yesterday nagpamedical check up kami for our visa application tapos sabi ng doctor na tumingin sa min may developmental delay daw anak ko.. so nirefer niya ako sa isang psychologist and developmental pediatrician..
actually sa totoo lang medyo nagulat rin ako at naguguluhan sa initial findings ng doctor. kasi part ng medical exam ng anak ko eh physical assessment lang at walang psychological test.. parang bara bara nga yung pag physical exam niya sa anak ko as in napakadali lang wala pang 5 mins.. tinignan lang yung bibig, tenga tapos pinaghubad pa siya. at habang nag P.E (physical exam) eh kinakausap niya yung anak ko.. eh yung mga ask niya hindi naman familiar sa anak ko like mag ask siya "what is your favorite food? "what is your favorite MC do or jollibee? tas ask pa siya "Where is your mommy?"eh hindi naman kami maturo nung anak ko kasi hindi naman mommy tawag niya sa kin kundi "mama".
tapos at that time parang wala pa sa mood yung anak ko at nagutom na sa kakahintay ng turn namin.

parang sama lang loob ko kasi nagsalita siya ng ganun without interviewing us or asking ano ang mga interest ng bata para makapag inter act yung anak ko sa kanya..
forgive me pero parang nagkaroon tuloy ako ng suspetsa na gusto niya lang madagdagan income niya since chest xray lang kasi kami ng husband ko sa clinic niya t Physical exam naman sa anak ko..
 
Pero since may referral siya at baka need din sa visa requirements namin eh mag iinquire na lang rin ako sa mga referrals niya.. kanina morning tawag ako sa isang child psychologist at ang bayad sa isang testing fee is 7k for 2 to 3 hours tas mga three weeks daw yun bago lumabas ang result.

Hay sensiya na ha.. medyo napahaba ata.dito ko lang buhos muna sama loob ko..hehe

Don't worry baka talagang wala sa mood kaya di nakipag-interact yung child mo with the MD. However, one of the signs kc of developmental disorder is if a child does not point at things that are familiar or of interest to him/her to get somebody's (eg. parents, yaya) attention. How old is your kid? Assess mo kaya sya sa age-appropriate developmental milestones (please click link http://www.ldonline.org/article/6313) If you're not satisfied with your own assessment, ask his teacher/s in preschool if he's attending one. Do not consult yet the clinical child psychiatrist, whose fee starts at P3,000 plus P700 for the formal report or the SPEd Diagnostician/Assessor, whose fee starts at P7,000 to P10,000 kc cheaper ang developmental pediatricians whose fees range from P2,000 to P3,000 and formal report fees range from P500-1000. We 1st consulted with Dr. Agnes Falcotelo (Tel. 372-3825 loc. 3235 sched Fri-Sat 3-6PM), a dev pedia from Capitol Medical Center. The initial evaluation took 1 hour and as parent, I was asked to fill-out a questionnaire re: my child's behavior and skills level. My child was asked to identify pictures, do some shape puzzles, sort, stack and string medium-sized beads. Dr. Falcotelo also asked him some questions and observed his behavior. My son did the same activities with Dr. Stella Manalo (Tel. 633-6686 Wed 2-5PM, Th 9AM-5PM, Sat 9AM-4PM), dev pedia from Medical City. We got good testimonials for both doctors from other parents that's why we chose to consult with both of them. By appointment pala sila and if your assessment and the teacher's assessment are indicative of a disorder, then call immediately kc dev pedias' scheds are always booked way ahead of time.

momsy, parang ganyan din ang ngyari sa amin nung anak ko.. last yesterday we went to the hospital and i was really upset. kasi yung inaakala kong magaling at gov.t hospita ay libre. lam ninyo ang ngyari pumila kami ng mhaba at para makaabot lang sa pila gumising kami ng maaga. pero walang ngyari! yung doctor na tumingin sa kanya parang kagaya ng ginawa niya kay momy pinkyn. hinusgahan niya agad ang anak ko ng di naman niya nabibigyan ng oras. masama ang loob ko dahil ngbayad ako ng di ako nakontento sa mga ginawa niya. paanu niya na sabi na kelangan ng kung ano anung test sa anak ko ganun sandali niya lang kinausap ito. syempre pagod na ang bata ng kinausap niya kaya dina rin siya gaanu pinansin nito. pero mali sila, dapat bigyan nila ng oras para makausap nila ang bata. hindi yung konting tanung yun na agad ang findings nila. kaya dina ako babalik dun sa doctor na yun. kawawa naman yung mga bata. :'(

mommies, advise lang po..dapat po battery of tests an ibibigay sa bata..hindi lan po dapatna inerview at dapat po within a specific period of time kasi ang psychological and physiological delays ng isang bata hindi basta basta nakikita. pero pa dapat seond r even up to fourth visit sa doctor at un nga may mga series of interactions through play and stories...

and it is so heartbreaking for us parents na yung anak natin mala label ng mali kasi lang hasty assssment ang ginawa ng doctor.

CORRECTION LANG PO. Hindi sa anak ko nangyari yung hasty diagnosis ng doctor kundi ki mommydheng. Hindi rin kami sa government hospital nagpacheck up kundi sa Capitol med the 1st time and sa Medical City nung second time. WALA akong reklamo sa dev pedias na tumingin sa anak ko kc pareho silang MAHUHUSAY and one hour session allotted time nila consisting of interviews and several tests. "Custardcake" pakibasa po ulit mga previous posts sa thread na ito ng hindi ka nagkakamali. Nakakahiya sa dev pedias ng anak ko kung maling impression sa kanila ang maging bunga ng post mo. Naku naman!

welcome aboard daddy!
happy that you are a hands-on dad to your baby.

you've been going to skills pala (we're referring to skill builders right?) dyan galing baby ko, minsan rin kasi daddy nasa therapist/s rin talaga. its a good decision na pag-feeling mo walang improvement change the therapist. but of course, this will depend on how you gauge your expectations sa therapy sessions niyo.

here is the link to the list of therapy centers here in manila, you might want to keep this for future reference. i can't assure you they are cheap but try to ask nalang daddy.

in up-pgh, i believe P50/ hr ang session you really have to bear the long line queues.

good luck po, stay in touch dito po sa sp you'll learn a lot here.

have a nice day!  :D

i just want to share my story. i have a 9 years old son who is hearing impaired. at first katulad rin ng ibang mommy un reaction ko nung narinig ko na sinabi ng dev. pedia na hearing impaired ang anak ko. nung sinabi niya yun d ako makapaniwala then i ask his doctor how come na hearing impaired ang anak ko eh kapag tinatawag ko siya lumilingon siya, kapag inuutusan ko siya nakakasunod siya. the problem kaya ko siya dinala sa developmental pedia is because delayed ang speech niya then my developmental pedia explained to me na hindi iig sabihin na sinabi mong hearing impaired eh bingi na may level din pala yun. mild,moderate,severe and profound. so he advice me na my son need a series of test to make sure. the findings in st.lukes my child has moderately-severe binnaural hearing impairment. after that we go to ust for another test and the result is the same.we go back to our developmental pedia and he said that my son need to fit a hearing aid. he also said that he need to undergo  speech therapy.Now my son is currently studying at joseph gualandi school for hearing impaired  (oral school not sign language) and i'm happy that my son can speak clearly now. my advice is wag muna tau magalit or magduda agad sa doctor if they said na there is something wrong with our child wala naman mawawala sa atin if i coconsider natin ang findings niya kxe diba kung tama un findings niya at least mas magagawan natin ng remedy hanggat maaga. by the way my developmental pedia is DR. FRANCIS DIMALANTA of st. lukes and I can attest na he's really good.

hi mommies!
dnt feel so bad if your child was diagnosed to have special needs. It is better yun may early intervention so there will be a better chance of development.
My friend told me that there are school who can cater to children with special need.  there's one in paranaque with mainstre]reaming and therapy (PT/OT/ABA)

hi im a newbie here!

@daddy - yep i believe depende sa therapist ang improvement ng bata. before sa skill builders ang center ng son ko. magaling OT niya, ambilis ng improvement ng son in less than a month napapasunod niya son ko and my son is able to finish all his task with minimum whining. but, medyo hindi ako happy sa facilities. medyo maliit at masikip. not advisable for my son kasi mahilig syang tumakbo at magjump. so lumipat kami sa Therapy Works, pque city. maganda facilitiie nila, may play ground sa backyard and swimming pool for Aqua Therapy, malaki din rooms nila. separate rooms for OT, physical and speech.


@happiemommie - yes P50/hr UP CAMP therapy center. i called them before (when im still scouting for magandang center) but i learned na ang mga OT nila are students palang (interns ata tawag nila) so hndi pa talaga mga professional OTs, PTs at SPs ang maghahandle sa mga bata.

Hi mommies,

Me too have an herieng impared son. mag turn 10 sya ngayun and i really find it expensive sa mga Oral school, Hirap ding makahanap ng mga pssible sponsors for them kasi di naman kami mayama. but syempre as a mommy we all want the best para sa bata natin, especially yung may diperensya, Ask ko lang if mahal din ang tuition sa joseph gualandi school for hearing impaire joseph gualandi school for hearing impaired? san po ba ito located? ok ba talaga sila sa mga bata? thanks and Gobless.

hi ramSingh

My child study at joseph gualandi school for hearing impaired pang third year na namin, rest assured an kapag doon nag-aral ang anak mo he/she is in a good hand. i can attest na very high ang standard ng turo doon and maliit ang student teacher ratio so mas sure na mas matututukan ang anak mo. joseph gualandi is located at tropical ave. bf homes las pinas city under the supervision of the sisters of the little mission for the deaf. just text me at 09178614501 if you like na samahan kita doon sa school.

Hello fellow moms, I'm a newbie here. Was browsing the net to get some feedback on Hopewell School in Cavite. My son was diagnosed with a mild ADHD with conduct disorder almost 2 years ago. We were advised to have him take some therapy sessions. When we brought him to the referred therapy center by the Dev Pedia, sabi naman nung nag-assess sa anak ko he seems to be ok. Mukang mas malikot pa nga daw yung nephew niya. But we still let him had the therapy which he took every saturdays. Kaso ilang months na nakakalipas parang wala namang nangyayari kaya tinigil na namin. Right now, my son still takes classes on a regular school. There are some occasions that he'd be reported to be aggressive and very active in class for the past 2 years since he started schooling. Though this year we've big improvements with his behavior. My only worry is his having difficulty in Math, at this age he starts saying that he doesn't like Math. Kahit paulit ulit kami magreview pagdating sa school, parang di niya natatandaan pinag-aralan namin. Feeling ko yun yung sinabi nung Pedia na kids like him has selective attention, pinipili lang niya kung ano yung gusto niya tandaan. I'd like to know if Hopewell School would be able to help my son on this or if they have regular schooling that caters to hyperactive kids. Thank you for the time, God bless!

hi mga mommies. update lan po un son ko 5 y/o is doing his therapy sessions na here in cavite. we started last april 2010. his ot is 3x a week for P400/hr. so far may improvement naman and I believed na okay at magaling therapist niya. For his speech nasa waiting list na sya kasi accdg to his therapist di daw sila basta basta nagpapa-speech kung di pa naman kaya ng bata magconcentrate or to stay on his chair sayang naman daw ang bayad e wala din daw matutunan pag ganun. but I'm happy kasi nasa waiting list na siya kasi yun iba na kids last year pa sila nag-start pero di pa naka-queue. this SY dun sya mag-sped may kamahalan pero yun kelangan ng bata e. sabi din kc nun pedia neuro tumingin sa kanya i-maximize therapy tas as much as possible ipasok sa sped school.

Hi guys. I have 2 special angels.They were handled by an intervention consultant / child specialist. She accommodates parents kahit hindi papasok dun sa school nila sa Fairview. you can ask for tips and guidance. she calls it an open consultation. even if you have ot or sped in another school ok lang to consult. she has a wealth of knowledge to share kasi she has been with special needs children since 1997 and a teacher for kids since 1990 yata. try to set an appointment with her and she can answer all your questions. i dont know her email kasi my kids "graduated" na from her (regualr schools na kami  :)but her name is Teacher Rose, landline lang ang alam ko. 4182046. call her and ask her anything about your kids. she has helped me a lot.

hi mommy jasz,sorry din po super late na ang reply,I never had a chance to see the school you mentioned I directly sent my child in our province to my mother's care. We enrolled my child in sped  (thanks to all the good Samaritan who refer us there) nakatulong sa kanya  and malaking improvement sabi nang Dev pedia na tumitingin sa kanya, ang speech niya pala din ang problema at pagiging hyperactive niya,possible adhd sya pero regular school na sya nitong pasukan small size class lang ang kailangan para matutukan sya.ot rin sya  :(  ang prob mahina sya sa problem solving sabi nang therapist ganun daw talaga kasi gusto nila matapos agad so sinasanay sila sa patience kasi wala sila daw ganun .share ko na rin po ang therapy center niya  www.playandsaytc.com in baguio city.

hi po sa inyong lahat. i have a niece which diagnosed 4 years ago that she's an adhd child. she's currently attending a normal school. at the age of 9 she's still in grade 1. kasi ilang beses tinanggihan ng school. at first she's fine in her school. but our worst fear is happening now. she's been bullied now a days. she's crying every time she goes out of the school because of her mates. we're desperate. we're willing to do anything for her but we don't have so much money to spend. do u have any idea where we can send her here in taguig without spending too much? thank u in advance.. God bless u all!!!

Hi mga momies, Dito po ako sa Ilocos Sur.  My 1 year and 10 month old daughter has speech delay. She also walks on her toes. She can only say syllables like "bababa","mamama", "papapa", "tatata", "awooo"," aji aji, aja aja", "nanana" and some other syllables but no meaningful words yet until now.  And these just come out of the blue from her lips, not necessarily when I tell her to. I've been reading forums online but cannot find any schools or therapists that can help my baby here in Ilocos.  Do you know schools or clinics or neuro/developmental pedia near Ilocos? Her pedia recommends that I get my baby tested by developmental pedia if she will not still talk until she turns 2 years old. Please help.

Hello,

My son is 6 yrs old with Autism,his  I am glad to share with you that he goes to a SPED Center near Dasma, and Imus Cavite, the center's name is AIMTLC.  The SPED Teacher is very good, and teaches with a heart, she always gives feedback to the parent, even shows pictures and videos that the kids do for that day.  She is also homeschooling her daughter through Bo Sanchez, and let her daughter play with her students.  My son does not want to go to school before, I always force him to go to school, but when I enrolled him to AIMTLC, he loves to go to school everyday, and I can see a great improvement even in our house.
By the way, AIMTLC is located near DASMA Bayan.  You may contact the head directress:

....

In addition to this, the school is also teaching progressive approach!  That is why no pressure on kids like my son (with autism) , he is having fun why learning!
I am encouraging moms who are still looking for their kid's school.  The center is not big, but it has alot of  good materials.  They are also offering OT by schedule, with a license Occupational Therapist.  Moreover, unlike other SPED school tuition fee is lower.

Thanks for the post Mommy. Actually it was very timely that we are looking for a SPED school in Cavite.  My daughter  already 10 years old was diagnosed to have autism, global delay, microcephaly with only half of her brain developed upon birth.  She is having her OT and PT in DLSU-MC since 8 months old. Now we were advised that we can try to enrol her in SPED classes but the tuition fee is so expensive.  I was also amazed how God really works..being an attendee of "The Feast" in PICC, we know Bro. Bo very much  :)

Will try to inquire about SPED classes, hope we can still catch up before the classes resume.

Many thanks and God Bless!
