The Autism Society Philippines Wednesday "PWAy Day" aims to provide enrichment for teens and adults with autism (16 years old and above) 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.
On June 29, Wednesday, from 2pm to 5pm, we will be conducting a session on videoke and lipsyncing. Each participant will be asked to emote and project while singing their favorite song. If they are not verbal, they can lip sync or dance. The group will then decide on a song for which they will create a music video.
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.
"Adults with autism who are no longer in school end up in the fringes of society." Mona Magno-Veluz, ASP National President shares, "ASP is deeply invested in building a society where a individuals with autism be the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive and socially-accepted members of the community -- no matter where they are on the spectrum. By keeping PWAs active and engaged outside the home, we are also training the society to be more aware of what autism is, to be more appreciative of their gifts and to be more accommodating of their deficits."
