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.

the participants on said seminar

Jan is a Bachelor of Arts, Major in Psychology graduate of the University of the Philippines, with Masteral Units in Educational Management at the De La Salle University, Manila. She discussed the manifestations for Early Detection of a Child with Disabilities. Furthermore, she openly shared the clippings of her own child’s activities to encourage the parents to support their children’s talents and skills.

The seminar opens the door for greater awareness on persons with disabilities. Feedback from parents who attended the seminar resulted to having a more sense of understanding, patience and true acceptance of their own children.

ASP continues to work hard to educate the public on autism awareness. To request for an Early Detection and Early Intervention Seminar in your area, write us at or call 7-903-5496.
