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.

Catanduanes celebrates NDPR Week

By Fatima D. Kozma, ASP Virac, Catanduanes Chapter

The National Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation week was celebrated all over the country from 17 to 23 July 2012.

Our ASP Chapter based in Virac, Catanduanes coordinated the activities with various PWD institutions, corporate supporters, LGUs and the engaged community. The team is grateful for the help of Mr. John Laynes, brother of the mayor, whose kind generosity made many of the activities possible.

The four-day celebration was made memorable with a motorcade, a Service Mass, a Jollibee treat and Family Day get-together at a local resort. The PWDs from Jmames, Principal Cynthia Soneja, Mrs. Lisa Molod and her staff, the ASP Catanduanes Chapter members, Genevieve Laynes, Leticia Villamucho and Jeniffer Torres, and their families, the helpful staff at the many venues, among many other movers made the week feel like the blessing that it was.

The celebration was a reminder to the people on the island that ASPCC and its partners are active institutions, doing its share in advocating for individuals with autism one day at a time.
