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.

A Special Symphony stars Christian Bautista, who portrays the role of a Filipino singer-actor named Jayden.

A Special Symphony is endorsed by the Department of Education (DepEd). “The movie is a tribute to special children. It depicts the essence and appreciation of their talents amidst their disabilities and how music serves as an effective therapy for them,” wrote the released advisory last August 16, 2011.
