Max opened the Monday Parent Sign Language Class by teaching basic American Sign Language signs for two sessions. He also took the chance to get to know the parents, as he’ll be spending more time with their kids during his short visit. This is all still part of the organization’s FOND Program (Family Oneness Nurturing the Deaf) that aims to encourage parents to have active involvement in the education and development of their Deaf child.

Moreover, as part of the organization’s objective to create specialized recreation programs specially tailored for the Deaf community, Max has lined up a couple of sports activities, including Australian football, cricket and basketball with the Hearing Impaired Sequence kids of SPED Center Baguio.

This is in preparation for his 6-month stay in the country starting in November, where he will work full time with NMS Cares to develop both teaching and recreation programs geared for Deaf learners.

Max heads International Relations for NMS Cares. He is currently based in Melbourne. He splits his time between school and sports, him being a member of the Melbourne Deaf Basketball Club.
