Birthing Soon….ASP San Jose del Monte Bulacan Chapter

Now with 52 chapters nationwide, Autism Society Philippines (ASP) continues its mission to Share Hopes and Build Dreams for persons with autism and their families around the country.


Last August 6, Executive Director, Ranil Sorongon conducted an organizational meeting in Bulacan. More than 20 parents and professionals attended the said meeting hosted by Happy Child Academy and Resource Center. The members were oriented about ASP Programs and Services and “How to Organize a Chapter”, in the hopes of creating a new ASP San Jose del Monte Bulacan Chapter.

Dr. Sorongon also gave an orientation on Republic Act (RA) 9442 or the amended Magna Carta for Persons with Disabilities, popularly known as “20% Discounts for PWDs”. Sorongon was so surprised that all the parents who attended the meeting were not aware of the RA 9442, given that San Jose del Monte is an urban area. The situation again affirmed the necessity of having a massive information campaign on RA 9442.

We would like to thank Teacher Tina Borneo, a long time member of ASP and Teacher Jojo Aquino for initiating the said activity.
