Also, Int. School of Manila IS pricey, but not an issue if your employer gives you education allowance or pays in full as embassy apparently does. I would definitely negotiate that in if a private employer. Again, Good Luck!

Clearly you were way ahead of me and I neglected to read all the replies before commenting. Sounds like you are on top of it pretty well at this point, but yes the costs are insane for ISM.

The fees for the ISM school are $30k pa - this is a small fortune!!! Incl the support stream fees, building fund etc.

The keys for us will be - curriculum, the teaching staff (attitude and aptitude).

Home schooling would be a second option - we would have to source Uni (phycology / education) students, teacher cum stay at home mums after having children looking for extra cash, or early child care workers. Schooling gives the parents a break.

There must be other people over there in a similar situations.

Cheers

Default ASD 7yo non-verbal

Hello JMorrish,

hope you're doing well. We're now in a similar situation as you were in 2015 and were hoping to get some advise based on your experience. My son is 7yo ASD non-verbal and we would probably home school until the child is ready for integration with SEN support.

In that case we would be interested in the same things you were:
(i) Home schooling - availability of volunteers / tutors / speech therapists etc in Manila
(ii) ISM - experience with ASD SEN children at this school (employer would support some of the expenses)
(iii) King's school - experience with ASD SEN children at King's School

I am aware that you'd probably prefer private msg as before, but I'm new to the forum so cannot do it until 5 posts are done.

Here's to hoping you might read this, and respond in private
Grateful for your help in advance.

Default King's School

Hello,

in case you have had some first-hand experience with ASD children at the King's School in Manila, I would be very keen for advise.

My son is 7yo ASD pre-verbal (currently home schooled) but would be looking for a small school with an ASD support network to be able to accommodate his needs.

Grateful for your help in advance.

Best wishes,

If you go to BSM, they would say your child doesn't fit in their current set up, and in spite of their resources -they will say they do not have the resources to handle kids who are not within the bell curve.
I heard ISM has special education teachers, and they will respond to your email promptly unlike BSM.

There is also what appears to be a qualified and decent, possibly very good, Applied Behavior Analysis outfit that has expanded in Luzon to multiple sites. I comm'd with them the past year as we plan out our move with 5 y.o. son with moderate autism. If anyone needs info, let me know and I can PM you. As a side, they are on FB and I comm'd with them via messenger. They were very responsive and the reviews were good as well.
