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.

What do you do when you have limited information on autism, but desperately want to help meet the special needs of your growing child?

Ms. Cecile Sicam
In 1989, with limited information and resources on autism, Mom Cecil decided to take up units Masters in Special Education at UP Diliman on top of her degree in Social Work. She is vital in the success of her son Likas, from early intervention, to being mainstreamed in a regular school, to his graduation in High School.

Being a firm believer in empowering her son, she resigned from a promising career to be a full time shadow teacher and mentor to her son in the workforce. Likas, now 29, works independently as a clerk at R&B Ice Plants in Quezon City.

Meet this month’s Family Support Group facilitator, Cecil Sicam - mother, teacher, autism advocate, founding member of Autism Society Philippines. Ms. Sicam is the current School Directress of Bridges Foundation, a special school in Quezon City.
