12th National Conference and 2nd Southeast Asian Conference on Autism April 28 & 29

Autism Society Philippines (ASP) will hold its 12th National Conference and 2nd Southeast Asian Conference on Autism on April 28 and 29, 2012 Saturday and Sunday with theme “Living with Autism:  Hope@Home” at Crown Plaza Manila Galleria, Ortigas Ave. corner ADB Avenue, Quezon City.


A diagnosis of autism does not only affect the person, it affects the entire family, the parents as well as the siblings. The diagnosis of autism poses insurmountable challenges that can make or break this basic social institution, the family.

Feelings of shock, anger, helplessness and incompetence dominate the family thus they tend to rely heavily on professionals to address the needs of their member with autism. Families lose confidence to take on their crucial role as the lead in autism management, taking on passive roles thru years of various interventions and huge expenditures.

This year’s conference aims to promote, first and foremost, acceptance of autism within the family. It seeks to empower families to make informed decisions and to take bolder steps to ensure quality life for their member with autism.

It will also provide a fresh perspective to professionals as collaborative and supportive partners of families in the management of autism.

It will feature interactive web interviews with Dr. Temple Grandin and Dr. Stephen Shore, two of the most famous experts on autism. It will also feature Filipino experts Dr. Alexis L. Reyes, our country’s leading Developmental Pediatrician, Dr. Michael Tan and Dr. Honey Carandang. It will showcase local experiences of parents, siblings and persons with autism as self advocates.

It will also showcase initiatives of the government (Carmona, Cavite) and the private sector “Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR)” both in the rural and urban settings to provide programs and services for families and communities facing the challenges of autism.

And finally, the Conference aims to highlight the vital role of the family in developing self advocates Filipino Persons with Autism (PWA).

Let us all unite in making the rights real for individuals with autism!
