ASP Congratulates Two Masters of Special Education

Believing that continuing education is key to helping children with autism, ASP Chapter Leaders navigate their lives to pursue a higher calling. Today, we salute two leaders from our ASP Chapters.

Evert L. Malapad, current president of ASP Metro South Chapter and Trustee of ASP National Office, is a Bachelor of Science Degree holder in Industrial Technology. Evert used to manage a thriving auto repair shop business. He gave up his promising career to meet the needs of then young daughter Mae-Mae who is diagnosed with autism.

Evert’s life took another turn when he decides to pursue a degree in Special Education. He graduated April 6, at and is a recipient for the Best Thesis Award at the The University of Perpetual Help –Las Piñas City.


Dreams become reality for the families of children with autism in Laguna, through the untiring dedication of Riza Cansanay, president of ASP Laguna Chapter. Riza is instrumental in enabling three community-based intervention centers in Calamba, Paete and Liliw, now partially subsidized by their local governments. The Autism Resource Center, Los Baños, which she helps manage, is now a thriving community center, employing adults with autism and other disabilities.

A graduate in Master of Science in Family Resource Management from University of Philippines Los Baños, Riza adds another feather to her cap, as she graduates this April 17 at University of Philippines Diliman. Her thesis in Masters in Special Education is in line with the Early Detection and Early Intervention Program for Children with Autism.
