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.

One with Autism, See you in Cebu

By: Socorro Deligero, ASP Cebu Chapter

The 3rd ASP Chapter Leaders Conference was more than I expected. Because they filled me with vital information, what I needed to know more pertaining to children with special needs. There were other equipping topics and proven strategies like transforming one to become an effective leader and speaker.

Endless sharing of ideas and achievements somehow resolved the disappointments and unpleasant experiences encountered by different chapters. The conference was also a gateway to reach out to other chapter leaders from different parts of the country and build new relationships as well.

The three-day conference was also very timely as we were able to campaign our Cebu Regional Autism Conference. It was also chance for leaders to take the opportunity to visit Cebu City, the queen city of the South.

To signify “One with Autism”, (ASP Cebu Chapter’s 2010 Vision-Mission tag-line), ASP Chair Emeritus, Dang Koe informed the leaders about the Angels Talk column of Manila Bulletin, where the 2nd Regional Autism Conference was plugged. Click here to read more about the conference.

With the support of ASP National, ASP Chapter Leaders, ASP Cebu Chapter, headed by our President, Ms. Sandra Espina, the officers, the hard working committees, in cooperation with SM City Cebu and the SM Program on Disability Affairs, we are confident that Cebu would be the next ASP National Conference hub.

As the 3rd Chapter Leaders Conference was drawing to a close, I suddenly had a warm feeling – different personalities, from different parts of the country, converging together; working towards the same goal: to help children with autism reach their highest potential and to become productive members of the community.

So wherever you may be, let our hearts be One with Autism. “See you in Cebu!”
