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.

Grace abounds at the ASP Angels Walk for Autism

Thousands of angels walked for autism yesterday, 16 January 2011 at SM Mall of Asia grounds. ASP National President, Grace Adviento delivers her opening speech to usher the Angels Walk for Autism.

Raising a child with Autism is a lifelong challenge. Today, I walk for Autism. I walk for Adrian, my son. It’s an annual reminder for me, to renew my commitment to him. Together, and with all the families dealing with autism today, let us hold hands and walk as one.

Autismo paghandaan. We ready ourselves to do better. Maagap na deteksyon at interbensyon. Early detection and early intervention remains our top priority. We remain creative to reach out to other families.

We walk this journey with great encouragement from people like you. We dedicate this walk to a better and brighter tomorrow--- a dream society that accepts our children for what they are -- angels of God.

Enjoy the walk and the rest of the program. Maraming salamat po at magandang umaga!
