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.

Early Detection and Early Intervention Program (EDEIP) in Quezon City

Teacher My during EDIEP

The seminar is part of ASP’s project to train Barangay Health Workers and Day Care Teachers to detect (not diagnose) signs and symptoms of autism and make proper referrals. It is the initial step to be followed by early intervention where children with autism (CWA) are taught the basic skills like sitting, waiting, coming when called, toileting and walking. Early detection is the key for an early intervention. This brings forth significant improvements in the child’s functioning. Early detection and early intervention (EDEIP) are vital in the development of CWA to become productive members of the community.
