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.

Helping a CWA Build Big Dreams

By Marietta Tan, President, ASP Lagro Chapter

Wendell Principe is a 12-year old boy diagnosed with autism when he was 4; but due to poverty and domestic problems, he was never brought to a special school. His father is a stroke survivor and his mother is fighting stage 4 breast cancer. Vanessa Nicolas of TV5's Good Morning Club called me last 22 October 2012 and asked if i could help them find a free SPED school near the area. I immediately called a SPED teacher, Irene Pranada Lee and Principal Dr. Lilia Garcia to facilitate acceptance of Wendell to the Lagro Elementary School. On October 27, 2012, Wendell together with his mother, received a certificate accepting him to study at LES! This momentous event was witnessed by Ms. Cheryl Cosim and televised by TV5 on its Good Morning Club Show! A small deed on my part, but a big dream for a special child.

No great deed is little for a child with special needs. Thanks to ASP for making a difference to this child. :)
