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.

Seminars on

1. Home Management Program: A Parent Perspective

Acquired valuable skills can support the PWAs road to self-reliance. Home Management Program is created to meet the specific needs of the PWA and also aims to address behavioral concerns of PWA at home.

2. Daddy's Power: A Father's Journey with Autism

Traditionally, mothers are the ones responsible for their children with disabilities while the fathers take on the role as breadwinners. But Ever Malapad and his wife Apple chose the road less travelled. Evert has taken upon himself the responsibility of taking care of Mae Mae, their daughter with autism for the past eight years. It has never been that easy yet the rewards have been immeasurable.

This talk shares Daddy Evert's journey from the moment his daughter was diagnosed with autism, his decision to forego his rising career as an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW), his struggles and triumphs as a "daddy-teacher" and his advocacies in championing the cause of persons with autism and other disabilities.

Be inspired and encouraged as you listen to his unique story!
