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.

Caring for Special Customers

Participants during SM Committee on Disability Affairs

ASP, in partnership with SM Committee on Disability Affairs, is one with SM in envisioning a PWD- Friendly environment in the mall. ASP National and ASP Chapters collaborated for the “Autism Orientation” project which started in the year 2007, that aims to educate mall frontliners about Special Shoppers with Autism.

As an important component of “SM Cares” program, SM Supermalls conducts this series of seminars twice a year for each of their malls. It covers handling customers with different disabilities. Aside from ASP, SM Committee on Disability Affairs (SM CDA) invites speakers from United Architects of the Philippines, Downs Syndrome Association of the Philippines, ADHD Society of the Philippines, and Southeast Asian Institute for the Deaf.
