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.

The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) Diliman Chapter gave an Autism Awareness Seminar for the Security Personnel of New Era Unversity (NEU) last August 19, 2012 at the NEU Security office.

About 40 security guards were present in the talk given by Dra. Rosemarie A. Segui and Josephine J. Palomares, Diliman Chapter's auditor and president respectively.

Dra. Segui explained what autism is and what it is not; while Ms. Palomares advised the guards what to do during "difficult situations" while inside the University. Ms. Penelope Sandoval, the NEU SPED Directress was also present to give support and to discuss further how the Security Unit and SPED Department can work together to provide the best service possible to students with special needs.

NEU SPED Department has a mainstream and a full inclusion program. Students with special needs are able to attend class and go around the campus with their neuro-typical peers.

The guards were thankful to ASP because of the very important information shared that will further equip and enable them to do their jobs better.
