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.

SM North EDSA continues to uphold PWD Environment

Manila Bulletin's Lifestyle page featured SM City North EDSA: A PWD-Friendly Mall. ASP Chair Emeritus, Dang Koe, gives her testimonial along with other PWD organizations.

“At the time of the unfortunate incident involving the teen with autism, the ASP was already getting ready to offer SM assistance in giving autism orientation to their security guards,” says Chair Emeritus, Dang Koe.

“But we were pleasantly surprised that SM was thinking not only of giving an orientation on autism, but also invited other disability organizations to participate in this awareness exercise. Better still, this was not only for security guards, but the entire SM service crew as well.”
