The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of persons on the autism spectrum disorder. We envision a society where Filipinos on the spectrum become the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive, socially-accepted citizens of an Autism-OK Philippines.

ASP-Molino Chapter is Born!

ASP Molino is the newest and the 37th chapter of ASP (we now have 40). Ms. Janette Peña, ASP Bacoor Chapter President officiated the induction. Jan is also known as La Governadora of ASP Chapters in Cavite towns, having organized chapters of Bacoor, Molino, Tanza, Trece Martirez, and Dasmariñas.

In an effort to generate more awareness to the other near-by towns, Jan approached one mother from ASP Bacoor Chapter to lead a new chapter. “I saw a potential leader in her,” said Jan of Ms. Jacqueline Garcia.

Jacqueline (Jacky) Garcia is also serving as ASP Board of Trustee from May 16, 2009 until October 24, 2009. “From 10 original members, there are now 23 members,” said Jacky. She visited the office on September 9, to give the update.
