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.

“Truly, it is only through an empowered and united initiative from the community that advocates for these children, such as doctors, different therapy centers, teachers, non-profit organizations, and families, that we can achieve the common goal of seeing all differently-abled children, regardless of socioeconomic status, reach their maximum potentials as valued and contributing members of society,” said Prof. Archie David, who recently joined the QLD as its executive director and reaffirmed the center’s intensified commitment to advocate for the wellness and community integration of people with disabilities.

QLD is an active institutional member of ASP, extending its venue for free during ASP some of ASP’s 2010 seminar series. For more information about the Quality Life Discoveries’ service, charity and research programs, you may visit it online at
