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.

ASP City San Fernando Chapter Celebrates 16th ACW

By: Joyla Ofrecia, ASP CSFP Chapter President

ASP City of San Fernando Chapter (ASP-CSFP) joined the annual Angels Walk for Autism last Jan 22 in celebration of the 16th National Autism Consciousness Week. The contingent of 10 families together with the 30 Bachelor of Elementary (BEED) SpEd major students from the University of the Assumption and Holy Angels University were among the more than 5,000 delegates who participated in the walked at SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City.

After the walk, the group went to Shangrila Cinema to watch the film “Ocean Heaven” starring action star Jet Li. The film is about a father who is a widow fighting against cancer. Counting his remaining days, he prepares his son to become independent and ready for his eventual death.

The chapter also held an exhibit at the University of the Assumption from Jan 24-27 and at Holy Angels University from Jan 26-27 with a film showing of Temple Grandin and Black Balloon at the respective schools.
