ASP gives Autism Orientation through Media Partner DZAS

ASP gave an Autism Lecture and ASP Orientation to long time media partner, DZAS on June 5, 2010. The lecture came as an invitation for their 62nd Anniversary Celebration and is one of their ministries for persons with disabilities.

702 DZAS "Agapay ng Sambayanan" is Far East Broadcasting Company (FEBC) Philippines' first station to go on air. Through its broadcasts, millions of Filipino lives have been touched and transformed by the power of the Word of God.

DZAS has helped hosted a mini-concert on the 2009 NDPR Week Celebrations and also regularly invite ASP to give radio interviews on autism during Autism Consciousness Week.

ASP Executive Director Ranil Sorongon oriented the participants about ASP while Teacher My Sorongon, ASP EDEIP (Early Detection and Early Intervention Program) Educator, gave a lecture on Understanding Autism.

The Spencer Chapel, venue of the lecture, was filled with about 40 participants, composed of parents, public and private school teachers, other professionals as well as students. Some came as far as Mindoro, Antipolo and Bulacan to listen and to avail of the free medical dental, legal, and other services given by DZAS. Even individuals who were waiting for their turn for bone scan joined the lecture.

ASP would like to thank Pastor Eric Maliwat, DZAS Manager, for inviting us and for supporting the advocacy of ASP. Autism has a special place in his heart as an uncle of a child with autism. Congratulations and more power to DZAS and the Far East Broadcasting Company (FEBC)!
