Building Local Chapters
The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) has grown from the 11 mothers who bonded together for the causes of their children in 1989 to nearly 10,000 members, with 63 chapters all over the country.
Leading in Autism Advocacy
The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) increases public awareness about challenges faced by Filipinos on the spectrum, advocating for appropriate services, and providing the latest information regarding intervention, education, and advocacy. It is comprised of persons with autism, families, teachers, and educators whose lives have been touched by autism.
Speaking in Unison
The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) reaches out to the many communities across the islands to organize and help make available services and support to persons with autism and their families, in close coordination with government agencies, local government units, and community builders. Our chapters remain to be driving force behind the organization's meteoric growth.

The Autism Society Philippines Wednesday "PWAy Day" aims to provide enrichment for teens and adults with autism who are not currently enrolled in schools. ASP PWAy Days will offer opportunities to learn new skills, to socialize with non-family members and to have fun. This will be every Wednesday, from 2pm to 4pm at ASP Headquarters. This is open to all PWAs, 16 years old and above .
On February 22 - we will be conducting a session on Videoke. Participants will sing their favorite song. With all the freestyle singing and dancing, there is much fun to be had!
On March 1 - Miss Donna Lim will conduct a second class on MixxedFit® - a people-inspired dance fitness program that is a mix of explosive dancing and boot camp toning. Everything about our dance fitness program can be described as explosive – all of our movements are always big, exaggerated, full-out, and our very best.
On March 8 - we will have a Sensory-Friendly Movie - a activity that will bring a unique movie experience to our PWAs. This will provide a more accepting and comfortable setting for our special audience. As part of the activity, ASP will allow bringing up the lights, turning down sound volume, allowing families/PWAs to bring in their own snacks. PWAs can get up, dance, walk, shout, sing, go in and out of the room.
On March 15 - we will have a Cooking session on Hotdog Roll for PWAs. This will teach the PWAs on proper food hygiene, simple food preparation, and presentation. Participants must bring their own hair net, apron, and closed shoes (no slippers or sandals please). Prepare a P150 donation when you get on-site.
On March 22 - there will be a session on Watercolor Painting with Teacher Amos Manlangit. This activity will highlights the creativity of the PWAs and freely express themselves in order to develop their natural artistic abilities. It promotes communication, emotional growth and sensory integration while also fostering social interaction in a fun setting. Participants must bring their own painting materials - watercolors in tubes (reeves brand), illustration boards 15x20inch and nylon brush (soft bristles).
We would like to foster independence among our participants. But if needed, a maximum of one (1) companion per PWA will be allowed in the training room. To attend, simply sign up on the form below and prepare a P50 donation on every activity (except for cooking session) when you get on-site.
