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.

Autism Angel in Congress- ABB Keynote Speaker

Cong. Irwin Tieng
The youngest congressman of the 14th Congress, BUHAY Party-List Representative, Congressman Irwin Tieng grew up in the business world, but he decided to take on the concerns of the persons with disabilities as his advocacy.

He is no stranger to the Autism Society Philippines, as he is always visible in our activities. He plans to put up his own scholarship foundation giving grants to Sped Teachers who are willing to serve their country; and also to poor but deserving students with disabilities.

Last year he advised ASP to prepare a position paper and to also encourage other disability support groups in this undertaking. On January 2009, during the Autism Consciousness Week, ASP submits the bill proposal that will institutionalize a Comprehensive, Accessible and Affordable Early Detection and Timely Intervention Services for Children with Disabilities.

One of his proposed measures was signed into law, now Republic Act 9504, which increases the personal exemption of taxpayers with PWD dependents from P8,000 to P25,000.
