We are a small group of parents, with the common bond of having a child with Autism. Our children are either non-verbal or have a very limited communication skills. It is a very difficult and heart-breaking struggle not being able to communicate with your child.
We have been relentless in our search to help us develop a breakthrough with our children in order for us to communicate with them. The breakthrough came following our discovery of the educational method Rapid Prompting Method (RPM).
Rapid prompting method(RPM) is a teaching method which has been life changing for our children and our families. RPM is an academic teaching method that can lead to communication for non-verbal persons with Autism and assist people with limited verbal communication. Realising its benefits and under the guidance of Claire Philbin, RPM teacher/ facilitator , St Senan's Primary School, Enniscorthy Vocational College & Cumas Adult Services New Ross have all brought this teaching method into their facilities and it has enabled our young people to finally announce their intelligence, which until now remained " untapped" .
RPM - was developed by Soma Mukhopadhyay who lives in Austin, Texas, USA. Soma's son Tito was diagnosed with Autism & She developed the RPM technique to teach him. So great was her success that Soma now runs HALO (Helping Autism Through Learning & Outreach). HALO is an non-profit Organisation where Soma conducts one to one RPM education & training.
Soma has openly recognised our commitment to RPM and there is now a rare and precious opportunity to bring Soma to Wexford to work with local children over a Three Day Conference. We are extremely honoured to say that both Soma & her son Tito have agreed to come to Enniscorthy in June 2020. Soma's visit comes at a cost. While families and professionals are paying to attend the conference with Soma, there are additional running costs. Soma & Tito's flights and accommodation , equipment hire and additional overheads have to be covered. We would greatly appreciate any financial support you could give.
These Children Have Been Silent For Too Long
Many thanks to you in anticipation of your support to ensure this life changing opportunity for individuals with autism can be achieved.
