MILESTONES

A Child’s D.R.E.A.M. Foundation takes pride in having assisted over 10,892 children and over 20,150 parents, guardians, siblings, teachers and caregivers from the Philippines and around the world. Along with direct treatment, the Foundation also conducts community development initiatives as well as special needs advocacy. To date, the Foundation has held over 476 public community workshops, administered seminars to business and social groups throughout the region, and has worked with city officials to draft ordinances that benefit families with autism. In recognition of D.R.E.A.M.’s strong voice in special needs advocacy, the Foundation was awarded the inaugural 2014 SENIA (Special Education Network in Asia) Honorary Certificate for Advocacy in Singapore.
