On October 5, the world will be celebrating the “International Day of Teachers” to give honor and recognition to our dedicated heroes and second parents-our teachers. Autism Society Philippines and Starlink Asia would like to also recognize our teacher thru a special screening of “A Special Symphony”. (Schedules below)


A Special Symphony stars Christian Bautista, who portrays the role of a Filipino singer-actor named Jayden in the film. The character is a struggling singer whose quest for fame is not quite successful in the Philippines. With his Aunt Penelope’s help, Jayden decides to fly to his mother who lives in Jakarta, Indonesia. There he takes on a job as a music teacher for children with special needs.
