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 Makati Chapter, A New Beginning

By: Jhoseplex M. Inocalla, ASP Volunteer

Preparation for the birth of ASP Makati Chapter started on this day, May 30, 2010 at the Conference Room of Barangay La Paz, Makati City.

ASP Cavite Chapters “Governadora” Jan Peña, also ASP National’s Membership Committee Head, conducted a Family Support Group (FSG) meeting and ASP Orientation to (10) parents of special children, volunteers and professionals from Bgy. La Paz and Bgy. Palanan.

Jan was joined by Psychologist, Mrs. Adelmar M. Casten, and Educator, Mrs. Marlou M. Inocalla; who are both ASP Professional Members.

During the FSG, the participants openly shared their concerns on having a special child. They focused on the importance of having a strong family bond, when one or two of its members has a disability, or is born with autism.

During the ASP Orientation, the group was inspired by the experiences, testimonials and involvements of other ASP Chapter members in ASP activities like “Angels Walk.” The group was encouraged to share their thoughts on how to make a strong foundation for the new chapter.

After this short activity, we all looked forward to the birth, the new beginning for ASP Makati Chapter. We would like to thank Brgy. Captain, Elmer Jose N. Espiritu, who gave his full support for making this event possible.
