APM Educational Project 2022 – Philus’ Family
Philus is a talkative 2 years and 7 months old boy. He was diagnosed with ASD at the age of 2. Philus has many verbal language skills, but he has great difficulty following instructions and responding to his parents and teachers. His mother reported that she has had great challenges bringing him out in the community as he gets easily distracted and attracted by many things. A 5-minute walk often takes 30-minutes to walk with Philus.
