FROM THE PRESIDENT'S DESK
It's World Autism Day!
I was fortunate to be invited to the National Conference Autism & Inclusion as the President of MASH. It was an excellent sharing platform on current updates between parents, professionals and policy makers. One of the important highlights in the session was engaging and empower parents.
I would like to invite all members to reflect our practice – how much have we engaged parents; how much have we coached them effectively; how much have we facilitated them in looking at choices of interventions – base on evidence?
Embrace working hand-in-hand with parents – we will get more results!
On the other hand, I would like to invite you to be part of "Ride a Train Program", a joint initiative between MASH and Yayasan WIBA Prima as volunteer. State your participation as a comment in this post – our secretary will take note of it.
Let's work together for a betterment of Malaysia through our own unique expertise – Speech-Language Therapy and Audiology, because "together, we can achieve so much!"
