Autism – Special Ed Class of Ormoc City Central School


With all my heart I support my cousin




Autistic children should be considered by their parents as

blessings from above, not a curse.

This was the reminder of Ormoc City Mayor Eric Codilla during the launching of the Autism Society Philippines (ASP) – Ormoc City Chapter, last April 26 at the Multi- Purpose Hall, New Ormoc City Hall.Mayor Beboy shared that it is really a predicament at first to be a parent of an autistic kid or a special child. But he shared his belief later on, that it is a sign of God’s love and trust to them that the Lord imparted to them the responsibility to nurture His special children.



Ormoc City’s First Lady Julida M. Codilla also extends her advocacy program through the Special Education Classes of Ormoc City Central School. The program which started its operation three years ago proved to be effective, according to Teacher Arlene P. Sia, during an interview in her classroom.

She backed up her claims with the increased enrollment of children with Autism, Global Developmental Delay, Down Syndrome, Celebral Palsy, and other intellectual and multiple disabilities, with ages ranging from 5 to 38 years old. The mayor has a special child enrolled in the central school’s special education class.

Morning sessions are confined to communication arts, social development, motor and recreational activities, music and arts and remediation. Afternoon sessions focus on sports and physical development, numeracy, vocational training and functional literacy and other tutorial learning activities.

Sia says there’s no gap or difference about teaching children with disabilities, as she applies love and care to them similarly to how she would her own two children. Sia has 17 years experience in teaching, including 3 years in special education in OCCS. She hopes to a more accepting society where parents will no longer ashamed to send special children to school or visit public places.
