Dr. Maria Carolina Ramos Alejano will work with the Great Physician Rehabilitation Foundation, and the Autism Society of the Philippines-Dumaguete Chapter.

The Autism Society is an organization composed of parents of children and adults with autism, whose aim is to promote the rights and well-being of this often- misunderstood group of persons with disabilities (PWDs). GPRehab is an NGO currently implementing a children’s rehabilitation project in the Metro Dumaguete area.

Alejano specializes in the assessment and treatment of children with developmental delays, developmental disabilities or chronic conditions affecting physical or emotional development, learning or behavior.

The Philippine Society for Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics only has in its list 30 doctors in the entire country with Developmental Pediatrics as a specialty, none of whom practice in Negros Oriental.

Dr. Alejano will be accompanied by her team composed of DK Equipaje, an occupational therapist, and five Special Education teachers. They will conduct evaluations of children with autism, attention deficit- hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Down syndrome, and other conditions to come up with a clear picture of the child’s abilities, as well as to give recommendations that parents and teachers can use as the child develops.

Interested parents are required to pre-enlist at the GPRehab Center in Calindagan before Thursday, Nov. 18. For more information, call 4228308 or 2261887.(GPRehab)
