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 Family Support Group for September 2010

Tell your hopes and Dreams to us and we will listen

Our FSG facilitator for the month of September is no other than Ms. Belina Regalado, the mom of Thristan Mendoza or better known as “Tum-Tum”, International marimba prodigy.
Ms. Belina Regalado and Tum-Tum

“When Tum was still a kid, he hated video lights or any form of the shade of red. He could not bear the sounds of electric drills and food grinders. He didn’t like looking at the mirror. He has fascination over spinning objects such as electric fans and bicycle wheels. He needed a lot of prodding before he can join the other children”.

Tum tum made his presence felt in the music scene playing 3 musical instruments such as drums, cymbals and temple block. The same year, he was diagnosed with autism. By age 10, he performed a total of 120 shows with musicians around the world. He earned the Millennium Dreamer’s Award from Walt Disney Company, McDonald’s and UNESCO. The University of the Philippines President’s Committee on Culture and the Arts named him the first and only gifted child prodigy and only special child among the recipients.

Hi. I would like to share the talent of my son. He is into music. Please search for his name Christian Caragayan in youtube. I hope that parents of special children who will view his video will derive inspiration from it.
