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.

This November, take this opportunity to meet Ms. Ma. Therese Jalandoni- Macapagal, better known as Mariter. She is married to Arturo, second child of the late President Diosdado Macapagal. Mrs. Macapagal is the current Executive Directress of St. Joseph Cupertino School for Special Children, one of the oldest schools for children with special needs in the Philippines.

She is also the present president of Special Olympics Philippine and a Trustee of ASP; Mariter dedicates all her achievements to her family and to Andrei.

“The most important thing that I have learned in my life so far is to thank God for giving me Andrei. Through him I have learned how to love without expecting anything in return.”

Andrei, now 44, is a prolific artist with autism. His private collections have been exhibited in ASP’s World Autism Awareness Day Celebrations and other ASP events. Andrei’s colorful biography is now featured in the book “Our Andrei: Living with Autism”
