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 Cebu Chapter Dinner Concert

By: Socorro Deligero ASP Cebu Chapter, Secretary

ASP Cebu Chapter celebrated Independence Day last June 12 with a Dinner Concert for A Cause. It was a relaxing night for loving people, who came in support for the chapter. To be celebrating with special children in the same event is a dream-come-true for the parents and therapists alike.

Guests were unmindful of the hand-flapping and other odd behaviors of these children; since people around them are aware and understood their condition. It was not only a worry free night, but a night full of merry making and surprises.

Children from REACH Center, Responsive Education for Autistic Children, awed the public with their exceptional talents on stage. They rendered classical songs chosen by their therapists.

Miguel Gabriel Luna, mesmerized us with his version of “The Celts” and “I Have a Dream,” popularized by ABBA, through is flute recorder. Miguel was diagnosed with autism a few years back, and is now into mainstreaming.

Thank you for posting this, Teacher. I am so touched and am warmed especially to see Miguel's picture.

Just to reaffirm your article, I myself had a blast. I think holding that dinner was a splendid idea for our kids had a chance to socialize and parents had a good bonding opportunity. It was a gathering of kindred spirits. Kudos!
