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.

Flying Southeast Asia

After the successful Autism Orientation last February 1, for customer-related department heads, a second invitation was received by ASP. This time: to give an orientation to Regional Managers of Cebu Pacific. Click here to read previous threads.

“The participants are Station Heads from our Regional Stations who usually convene in the Philippines for updates and meetings. We feel that this is a great opportunity to provide them with an overview and awareness in interacting with guest with special handling needs,” came the email invitation of Keight Regala, training supervisor of Cebu Pacific.

Ms. Lissa Araneta, Cebu Pacific Regional Area Manager, immediately thought of integrating a second orientation for the incoming foreign personnel. This was not part of her original plan, but because of the impact made by the first orientation, ASP received a second invite.

ASP Chair Emeritus Dang Koe embarked on another journey to face managers from Taipei, Shanghai, Singapore, Saigon, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu, Jakarta, Hongkong, Canton, Osaka, Macau, Incheon and Pusan. With her is DSAPI (Down Syndrome Association of the Philippines, Inc.) Mrs. Agnes Lapeña, wife of DSAPI President, Elmer Lapeña.

ASP goes Beyond Borders, reaching out to others for more understanding and compassion for people with autism. This Valentine’s Day, show you care. To request for an Autism Orientation in your commercial establishments, please write us at or call us at 7-903-5496.
