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 Family Support Group for April 2010

Grace and Adrian Adviento

“I found myself in a twilight zone. The feeling is like dreaming while awake. I felt numbed, I was shocked, in denial, angry and depressed all at the same time. The dreams I had for my son, going to Ateneo de Manila University or becoming a congressman, were thrown out of the window. However, I discovered that the more I share my experiences to others, acceptance of Adrian became a lot easier and my own recovery, quicker”.

Our facilitator for this month is Mary Grace L. Adviento. She is the new ASP National President. Grace is a physical therapist by training but a copy center entrepreneur by profession. This woman of many talents is an invaluable resource to ASP. Her down-to-earth and magnetic appeal makes her one of the best facilitator of ASP’s Early Detection and Early Intervention program. She is mother to Adrian, a 7-year old child with autism.
