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.

Autismo Sa Pinas: ASP Online Community Website Launched

In response to the growing needs of the Philippine Autism Community, ASP gives its constituents an opportunity to have their voices heard and thus the launching of ASP’s online community website, Autismo sa Pinas.

“Many Filipinos are daunted by autism. Most of the families feel lost and overwhelmed. All their anxieties can find relief if they had the information they need. A lot of this information comes from sharing and that's what's great about internet technology is that it allows people to immediately share information and resources. And most of all, they can find new friends who are in the same boat as they are in,” says ASP Trustee and Tech Visionary, Cristina Estampador.

ASP Community Website

The community site has a lot of interactive features, making it easy for the visitor to get information. Apart from the ASaP News; the site has the ASP Chapters and Resource Directories. An online message board allows online users to discuss on any topic surrounding autism where in some local experts will be asked to respond to some topics every now and then. The site also a booking system for seminars and events, in addition to a streamlined online membership registration. The site's "Be an Angel" page takes the user to more information on how to help and volunteer for ASP.

Another interactive component about the community site is that you can easily share articles through social networking sites, like Facebook and Multiply. ASP is encouraging its web visitors to express their comments as the site has that capability.

Aside from the ease and speed of internet communications, ASP members and chapters can readily access available resources through this site. "And there’s more to come. We’re going to keep on expanding in this direction,” says Ms. Estampador.

In our 21st year, ASP continues to work harder for the future of Filipino children with autism and their families. For more information visit our community website Autismo sa Pinas or call 7-903-5496.
