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.

Bulong-Pulungan para sa Autismo

By: Cathy Genovia
Last October 20, 2009, ASP National President Dang Koe and Board Trustee Carmel Almendrala faced an audience composed of well-known journalists like Deedee Siytangco, Jullie Yap-Daza, Joanne Rae Ramirez, Cynthia Santiago, Charito Planas and others.

Bulong Pulungan is a twenty-two year-old media forum started by a group consisting of known and influential journalists of the country. They conduct their weekly forum in Sofitel Philippine Plaza by inviting guests for “question and answer” session on important issues.

After a 20-minute presentation on autism and ASP (lively peppered with questions from the engrossed audience), Dang Koe joined Carmel Almendrala and the other panelists – Speech Pathologist Dr. Ferdiliza Garcia, Occupational Therapy Janel Belarmino and Pschologist Dr. Rocky Balingit.

This Bulong-Pulungan has increased our Autism Angels in Media! Among others, here is one article written by one of the attendees, Joanne Ramirez, as published in Philippine Star.
